The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Super Safari Toy Set, model #30025, and the Deluxe Circus Train Set, model #30040. The model number can be found on the back of the box in the lower right corner. The Toy Sets come in a white box with the words, “Softimals. Build, Play, Repeat.” and “Ages 1-1/2 to 5” printed in a colorful font on the front and back of the package. The sets have numerous plastic pieces that can be connected and fit together to build a vehicle pulling cars with a hippo, giraffe, zebra and other animals. The drivers of the lead vehicles, Safari Sam and Mighty Mike, have removable blue or yellow plastic hats.

According to the CPSC, the plastic hats found on Toy Set figures pose a choking and/or aspiration hazard for children. The CPSC is aware of one incident in which an 18-month-old child placed a hat in his mouth and started to gag/choke but the toy was removed.

Additional information:Trail Crest Children's Hooded Sweatshirt
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Trail Crest brand Boys and Girls Hooded Sweatshirts sold in sizes X-small, small and medium. Each has a camouflage pattern on the shoulders and arms, with drawstrings in the hood and zippers at the neck. They come in three color/pattern variations: birch and camouflage, pink and camouflage, and purple and camouflage. There is a tag sewn on the outside of the jacket’s left sleeve with style number “29121”. There is an additional Trail Crest tag in the neckline

According to the CPSC, the Hoodies and Jackets have drawstrings through the hood or neck which pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation.
