Meijer Mistakenly Resold 8 Recalled Items [PHOTOS]

cpsc.gov
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of 8 items originally sold at Meijer.

 

The CPSC says, due to an error, Meijer resold the items to discount retailers, dollar stores, liquidation firms, flea markets, and thrift stores nationwide at various prices.

 

It took me one second to recognize the Fisher-Price Stand-n-Play Ramp.  My kids play with it every day.  It seems the wheels can fall off of the cars.  Ours haven’t, but I’m glad to be warned.  I’ll have to take the cars away before the boys hear about the wheels coming off…they’ll take it as a challenge.

 

We have all of the recall information from the CPSC.
