RECALL: Fisher-Price Recalls Learning Pots & Pans Toys Due to Choking Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Fisher Price of New York, today announced a voluntary recall of about 15,000 Learning Pots & Pans™ Toys. Missing screws in the blue toy pan can cause the clear plastic cover to come loose and release small balls, presenting a choking hazard to young children. Fisher-Price has received five reports of the plastic covers detaching and releasing the small balls. No injuries have been reported. This recall involves Learning Pots and Pans™ toy sets with stackable pots and pans, a lid and shape-sorting blocks. The toys have light and sound features that operate on three AA batteries. Model number G6685 is located on the bottom of the blue pan. They were sold at discount department and toy stores nationwide from October 2007 to August 2008 for about $20 and manufactured in China
Consumers should immediately take these recalled toys away from children and examine the bottom of the blue pan. The pan should contain six screws. If all six screws are installed, no further action is necessary. If any screws are missing, the consumer should contact Fisher-Price to arrange for the return of the blue pan for a replacement. For additional information, contact Fisher-Price at 888-521-0820 anytime, or visit http://www.service.mattel.com/

Glow engines have been used in RC airplanes for some time now, and have made there way over to helicopters. Glow engines have a simple ignition system that uses a glow plug rather than a spark plug. The glow plug is heated by a battery operated glow starter, and meanwhile the modeler uses a starter to turn the engine over. When fuel enters the combustion chamber, it is ignited by the heated glow plug and the engine starts up. cheap video gameThe Vantage is specially designed to attach snuggly and securely above or below fire helmets - both modern and traditional - through the use of a swivel clamp so it won't snag or get in the waySONY PSP.
