The Consumer Products Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Companies often cooperate with the commission in addressing issues of safety concerns with their products.
It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
The following items have been added to the commission’s latest recall notice:
Toys R Us has issued a voluntary recall of the Journey Girl Travel Trunk. The blue metal handle on the trunk can be sharp and this poses a laceration hazard to the user. The trunks were sold exclusively at Toys R Us stores nationwide and online at www.toysrus.com from October 2012 through February 2013 for about $30.
This recall involves the Journey Girl Travel Trunks used to carry 18-inch-tall toy dolls. The 21-inch tall curved top trunks are purple with a blue pattern and a blue metal handle. The trunks were sold with three clothes hangers and two pull out drawers for storage. Travel trunks included in the recall have UPC # 48970277965070 and model number 5F5F79E. The model number is printed on the bottom of the travel trunk next to the UPC code.
Consumers should immediately stop using the travel trunk, put it out of reach of children and return it to a Toys R Us store for a full refund or store credit.
