Fisher-Price is recalling a whopping 10 million toys today in the biggest recall of the year! No deaths have been reported, but injuries include choking and cuts requiring stitches. Find out if your kids are in danger.

If your child is riding a Fisher-Price trike, you’ll want to keep reading. Little girls have been falling on the pretend ignition key that sticks out of the toys, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. At least 10 little girls were hurt. Officials say six of them were 2 or 3 years old and injured seriously.

The massive 7 million trike recall affects 14 styles of the trikes made for 2- to 5- year-olds. The trikes were sold between 1997 and 2010 for about $25. All the toys being recalled were made in Mexico and have pretend keys in the shape of a circle or a D. For a full list of the dangerous trikes, visit the Mattel website.

Unfortunately that’s not all. The toy maker is also recalling about 3 million baby play areas, 1 million high chairs and 120,000 cars and ramp ways.

Sources say several children have choked after a valve from an inflatable ball in the baby play area came loose. The high chairs were recalled after 14 parents reported the chairs cut their babies’ legs. The cars and ramp ways also pose a choking hazard.

In a statement, Fisher-Price said it “will be providing safety replacements/fixes for four products.”
