Toy Guns Recalled After 2 Boys Choke on Darts

1.8 million toy dart guns have been recalled after the death of two boys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said a 9-year-old from Chicago and a 10-year-old from Milwaukee died from asphyxiation after the suction-cup darts became lodged in their throats. The CPSC stepped in after the toys manufacturer, Henry Gordy International, refused to comply with a recall. The Autofire toy dart set was sold at Family Dollar stores from September 2005 to January 2009 for around $1.50. Gordy Toy and Ages 8+ are printed on the toys packaging. The toy guns should be disposed of immediately. Family Dollar has agreed to provide a refund which can be received by calling (800) 547-0359.
