WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product
Safety Commission, Electra-Plastics, Inc., of Newark, New Jersey is
recalling the Romper Room Animal Train No. H732R, because the three
small balls in the train are small parts and present a choking hazard

Resources brought this small parts hazard to the attention of the CPSC.

engine, a green car with two tigers facing each other and a purple car
with two elephants facing each other. The engine and cars each have two
pairs of black wheels. A string is attached to the engine for pulling
the train. Blue and white balls approximately 1 l/8 inches in diameter
are in the middle of the engine and each of the two cars where they can
be easily detached. The balls, which are small parts, present a choking
hazard to children.
Consumers should take the trains away from children immediately and
discard them or return them to the retail stores where purchased for a

by Pathmark stores and Rite-Aid stores in states east of the Mississippi
River. The toy was sold for approximately $2.40.
