Flying Toy Helicopter Being Recalled
Washington, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission, M.W. Kasch Company, Mequon, Wisconsin is recalling a
flying toy helicopter called Model No. WL 322 Flying Copter. Approximately
30,000 "Flying Copters" were distributed by the firm during the past 2 l/2
years nationwide. This toy has previously been recalled by other companies
who have marketed it. The toy, imported by many firms, has been responsible
for eye injuries and facial lacerations. Some of the injuries have resulted
in permanent blindness in one eye.
The Flying Copter which retails for $3.00 to $5.00 is a 7 l/2-inch
plastic flying toy helicopter with a hand launching device. The helicopter
is mostly white with three red plastic rotor blades. The launching handle
is green. Assembly is required before the toy can be flown. It is this
assembly which, if done improperly, could allow the rotor blades to come
off and strike the user or bystander.
Consumers are urged to discontinue use and to return the toy helicopter to
the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
