Little Tikes toy workshops and trucks recalled

WASHINGTON (AP) _ The Little Tikes Co. is recalling about 1.6 million toy workshops and trucks, after an 11-month-old boy got a plastic nail lodged in his throat.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the boy from Goose Creek, S.C., recovered after being hospitalized. The recall includes a variety of toys manufactured by Little Tikes of Hudson, Ohio, in both the United  States and China.

They were sold with red or blue plastic toy nails that are about 3 inches long. The recalled toys were sold on the Little Tikes Web site and by retailers around the country,  including Toys ``R'' Us, between March 1994 and June 2009.
