WASHINGTON, DC -- Illco Toy Company (U.S.A.) Inc., New York, New York is voluntarily recalling its "Walt Disney Mickey Mouse In N' 0ut School Bus" Model No. 8403. Components of the toy bus and its animal characters may separate and the resulting small parts may present a choking, aspiration or ingestion hazard.
CPSC is aware of two non-injury consumer complaints involving small parts.
This pre-school toy consists of a yellow plastic school bus with four Disney figures. The bus' front door has a sign that states "Disney's School Bus."
A total of 8,628 toys were sold nationwide in retail stores for approximately $7.99 from 1986 through 1989. Consumers should remove the product from their children's reach and return it to the store where purchased for an exchange or refund. They may also return it to Illco Toy Co., Inc., 200 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10010.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
