Choking Hazard Leads to Recall for Toy Plane Sold at Target

October 27, 2015

A ride-on toy plane sold exclusively at Target is being recalled due to safety concerns.

Manufacturer LaRose Industries announced this week that it would be recalling Peanuts Flying Ace Ride-On Toys. The toy's blue hubcaps can detach from the wheel's axle, posing a choking hazard to small children. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

LaRose is including about 11,000 planes in the recall.

The toys are intended for children ages 12 months to 2 years. The body of the plane is red, the steering wheel, propeller and wings are yellow and the hubcaps are blue. "Snoopy Flying Ace" is printed on the front of the toy airplane and Snoopy characters are printed on each wing and on the front. A hang tag bearing #38126 and a date code was attached to the product at purchase. For a list of the affected date codes, see the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release.

These products were sold at Target stores nationwide from July 2015 to August 2015 for about $40.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled ride-on toys away from children and return the product to any Target store for a full refund.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact Target at (800) 440-0680.
