Toy Cars Recalled

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Two models of a toy car which may pose a choking hazard to young children are being voluntarily recalled by Li Peng Enterprises, Inc., of Los Angeles, Cal., in an agreement reached with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The plastic toys, sold as wind-up and battery-powered models, consist of a panda pushing another panda in a four-wheel cart. Each cart has an umbrella with plastic discs and balls hanging from the umbrella. The carts are labeled "MUSICAL CAB ST-22 (A or B) MADE IN TAIWAN."

The balls on the umbrellas and other small parts can come off and present a choking hazard to young children. Consumers should immediately take the toys away from children, discard the toys or return them to the retail store where purchased for a full refund.

Approximately 4,800 of the wind-up toys and 3,600 of the battery-powered models were sold between November 1987 and January 1988 for $2.50 each.
