PhotoThe Manhattan Toy Company of Minneapolis, Minn., is recalling about 6,000 Pull-Back Speedy Jets sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The rubber tires can separate from the wheels, posing a choking hazard for young children.

The company has received two reports of the rubber tires separating from the wheels. No injuries have been reported.

The Pull-Back Speedy Jet is a wooden toy airplane with a blue painted body, natural wood wings and plastic wheels with black rubber tires. The toy has a pull-back feature that propels the plane forward.

The model number and lot code are printed on the bottom of the plane. The recall includes only those toy planes with lot code 155400 EJ.

The toy planes, manufactured in China, were sold at small independent stores from August 2017, through June 2018, for about $8.

What to do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and return it to the store where purchased or contact Manhattan Toy for a full refund.

Consumers may contact Manhattan Toy Company at (800) 541-1345 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (CT) Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (CT) on Friday, or online at www.manhattantoy.com and click on “Recall Information” at the bottom of the homepage for more information.
