Toy Guns Sold at Dollar General Recalled

About 9,600 Special Forces and Police SWAT Toy Gun Sets have been recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.

The Special Forces and Police SWAT Toy Gun Sets, which are being recalled by retailer Dollar General, of Goodlettsville, Tennessee and imported by Dolgencorp LLC, of Goodlettsville, Tennessee are constructed with orange tips located at the end of the toy guns’ barrels. These tips are designed to distinguish them from real guns, can easily be removed from the barrels, and pose a choking hazard to children. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall includes a Special Forces Weapons and Accessories Set and a SWAT Police Play Equipment Set. Each set includes two toy guns and related accessories. The number 48JQH09 is printed on the right side of the larger gun included in the recalled sets.

The recalled Special Forces and Police SWAT Toy Gun Sets, which were sold at Dollar General stores in 35 states from September 2009 through October 2009 for about $5, and were manufactured in China, a country long associated with products that have been found to be dangerous and linked with an increasing string of recalls.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately take the recalled toy guns away from children and return them to any Dollar General for a full refund or a replacement product. Dollar General Corporation can be reached at (800) 678-9258 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, or at the firm’s Website at www.dollargeneral.com
