A nine-year-old boy in Chicago, Illinois and ten-year-old in Milwaukee, Wisconsin died after they chewed on the one-inch, soft plastic darts, which slipped into their throats. The small suction cup part of the dart cut off breathing. The consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of 1.8-million toy dart gun set. The dart gun sets were sold nationwide at Family Dollar stores. Family Dollar has not sold the recalled toy dart gun in more than a year. The dart gun sets were imported by Henry Gordy International in New Jersey. Henry Gordy refused to recall the dart set so Family Dollar Stores worked with the CPSC on recalling the product.
