Happy Shirts, of Honolulu, Hawaii, in cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced a voluntary recall of Toy truck gifts with boy’s t-shirts. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.

Hazard: Connections in the toy trucks battery compartment can smolder or catch the trucks on fire, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Incidents/Injuries: Happy Shirts has received one report of a toy truck catching fire and three reports of toy trucks smoldering when batteries were inserted. No injuries have been reported.

Description: This recall involves Big Movers Super Car toy trucks that were gifts with the purchase of Big Movers t-shirts. The 4-inch long blue trucks have oversized tires and a flashing light on top and were sold with a yellow, red, and blue logo on the hood. The navy t-shirts were sold in boys’ sizes S, M and L.

About 9,000 of the gift sets were sold exclusively at Kohl’s stores nationwide and at www.Kohls.com between February 2012 and March 2012 for about $20. The product was manufactured in China and imported by Happy Shirts of Honolulu, Hawaii.
