Chicken Limbo game recalled for safety hazard
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Milton Bradley is recalling about
461,000 Chicken Limbo Electronic Party Games after reports of
the product collapsing unexpectedly, causing bumps, bruises,
cuts and one fractured foot, U.S. consumer safety officials
said on Thursday.
Milton Bradley, which is owned by Hasbro Inc., has received
46 reports of the game unexpectedly coming apart and 23 reports
of injuries, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The Chicken Limbo plastic electronic game has two side
poles that do not fit into their bases properly, and the game
can completely fall apart if touched, hitting children playing
the game and bystanders, the agency said.
The game, which was manufactured in China and was priced at
about $25, was sold at discount department and toy stores
nationwide from June 2005 through January 2006.
Owners of the game should take it away from children
immediately and contact Milton Bradley, based in East
Longmeadow, Massachusetts, to receive a free repair kit, the
