The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Crown Darts UK are warning consumers to stop using and dispose of about 19,800 banned lawn dart sets.
Lawn darts are banned in the U.S. due to serious risks of skull punctures and other serious injuries, particularly to children.
Crown Darts UK is unable to conduct the recall.
There are no reports of incidents or injuries.
The lawn dart sets were sold for 2, 4 and 5 players and contained 4, 8 and 10 units (darts) respectively, as well as individual spare darts.
The lawn darts are about a foot long (30 cm), have polypropylene flights (fins) designed to be held at the tail, with a brass body ending in a stainless steel spigot (peg). They were sold in assorted colors including red, blue, yellow, purple, pink, orange, ivory and green.
The CROWN DARTS logo is printed on the product.
The lawn dart sets, manufactured in the UK, were sold online at www.crowndarts.com from May 2004, through June 2020, for between $15 and $139.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the lawn dart sets and destroy and dispose of them to prevent further usage.
Consumers may contact the CPSC’s hotline at (800) 638-2772 for more information.
