Fisher-Price recall.Fisher-Price is recalling nearly 3 million toys intended for infants and toddlers that have inflatable balls whose valves can come off -- posing a choking danger, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada said.

At least 46 incidents involving the valves coming off have been reported. Of those, the CPSC said the valve was found in a youngster's mouth 14 times.
The recalled products include:
  • Baby Playzone Crawl & Cruise Playground
  • Baby Playzone Crawl & Slide Arcade
  • Baby Gymtastics Play Wall
  • Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium
  • 1-2-3 Tetherball
  • Bat & Score Goal
The toys, made in Mexico and China, were sold between 2001 and 2008 for $20-$68. Specific dates and model numbers can be found on the company's recall site.

If you have one of the recalled products, remove the inflatable ball, but do not discard it.

Then either go to the recall site or contact Fisher-Price at (800) 432-5437 weekdays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern Time to get a free repair kit.
