Toy Recalled after Children Choke

Comments Off

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced today the recall of the Playskool Team Talkin’ Tool Bench (TM). Reich & Binstock attorney, Mike Howell, filed the first lawsuit in the country involving this defective product that resulted in the death of a two-year old Texas boy. The lawsuit was instrumental in the recall. Hasbro, maker of the Playskool toy, was aware of another similar incident that resulted in the death of a West Virginia toddler. Experts have stated that the toy nail, which caused both deaths, fails specific ASTM standards for choking hazards. Reich & Binstock encourages anyone possessing htis toy to participate in this recall to prevent future incidents.
