Release # 91-047

WASHINGTON, DC -- Chadwick-Miller, Inc. of Canton, MA voluntarily recalled approximately 14,000 Toy Soldier Train toys #96774 because various wooden components separate from the toy and are a fatal choking hazard to young children. This recall was conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The wooden train toy is a set of 30 two and one-quarter- inch painted soldiers, one unpainted steam locomotive with four red wheels, a twenty-eight inch blue pull cord, three unpainted flat bed cars with twelve pegs each for mounting the soldiers, and six blocks with multiplication signs painted in red.

The set is contained in a brown cardboard box labeled, "Chadwick Set of 30 Wooden Toy Soldiers with train...Made in China."

The toys were distributed nationwide from 1986 to 1989. The retail price ranged from $9.98 to $12.98 each.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent any possibility of injury.

Consumers are urged to take these toys away from young children and destroy the product. As the firm is out of business, a remedy is no longer available.

The hazardous toys were discovered by a CPSC employee who received gift catalogs in the mail.
