Fisher Price Recalls Pogo Sticks
Fisher-Price is recalling about 154,000 Grow-To-Pro Pogo Sticks that pose a risk of fall or facial impact injury to children.
The pogo sticks have an internal metal pin that can wear down and cause the pogo stick to remain in the down position and release unexpectedly. So far, the company has received 17 reports of incidents involving the pogo Sticks, the company said.
There was one report of a child losing two teeth and another report of a child requiring stitches. Other injuries have included cuts and bruises to the face, arms and legs, the company said.
The recalled pogo sticks come in two colors: green (model number 73386) and pink (model number 77356). The model numbers can be found underneath the pogo stick's foot pegs.
Parents should take these pogo sticks away from children immediately and contact Fisher Price for a free replacement pogo stick. Contact Fisher Price at 1-800-991-2444.
