You’d think that toy companies would figure out by now that kids choke on stuff. I mean a company like Fisher-Price, they’ve been making toys for how many years?
It can’t be THAT hard to have some sort of quality control department that routinely looks at new toys and goes “Hey, you know, kids have tiny throats. Maybe we shouldn’t put little tiny parts on these new toys cause then we’d have to spend millions of dollars recalling them. What do you think?”
Regardless, Fisher-Price has moved to recall more than 10 million toys.

According to ABC News, the toy giant, Fisher-Price has recalled toys — including tricycles and play places — citing potential dangers from falling onto certain protruding parts and choking hazards from small parts.
“Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed,” a representative from the CPSC said in a statement.
