Buckeye, AZ– Rocking Horse Depot and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 1, 200 Rocking Horses over strangulation hazard the toy poses. The CPSC announced the recall on November 10, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the reins on the rocking horse bridle are long enough for a child to form a loop are their head and neck, which can result in strangulation.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves Rocking Horse Depot’s small, medium and large rocking horses with bridles. The rocking horse has a hardwood frame and is covered with synthetic hide. Each rocking horse has fluffy mane and tail, and a leather Rocking Horse Depot emblem on the right side of the saddle.”
The recalled toys were sold from November 2006 through December 2009 at RockingHorseDepot.com. The rocking horses sold for between $105 and $185.
Consumers can contact the Rocking Horse Depot to receive instructions on how to remove the reins from the horse to eliminate the strangulation hazard.
