Dart Guns Recalled Two Years After Boyâ€™s Death
Two years after a child was asphyxiated by a dart, OKK Trading has recalled 22,000 toy gun dart sets. The soft darts could pose a choking hazard.
In November 2007, an 8-year-old boy died after chewing on the toy dart and swallowing it. The dart became lodged in the childâ€™s throat, preventing him from breathing. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and OKK Trading is only aware of the one incident.
The â€œAction Teamâ€ play set recalled has a toy gun with three soft rubber darts, a S.W.A.T. watch, a baton, a walkie-talkie, a whistle, and a badge with an identification card. The soft, pliable orange plastic darts have a nearly 2 Â½ inch shaft and an approximately Â¾ inch diameter suction cup. The toy gun is black with an orange nose and trigger and red spring release mechanism. â€œMade in Chinaâ€ is printed on one side of the barrel. Consumers should immediately take away the toy dart set from their children and contact OKK Trading for a $3 bounty. The company will also pay return postage and shipping for the toy.
