Henry Gordy Toy Dart Settlement

Henry Gordy Toy Dart Settlement

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC") recently announced that Henry Gordy Agreed to pay a $1,100,000.00 civil penalty for failure to report children's toy dart gun set issues. The penalty agreement has been provisionally accepted by the Commission.

This resolves CPSC staff allegations regarding Henry Gordy's knowing failure to report potential product defects and hazards associated with its "Auto Fire Target Set" as required by federal law. Please refer to SHOOP A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION's previous blog post which explained in more detail reporting known product defects and safety hazards to the Commission.

In the Spring of 2010, Family Dollar Stores, Inc., and the Commission jointly announced the recall of about 1.8 million Auto Fire Target Sets because Henry Gordy refused to conduct the recall. By that time, there were three deaths associated with the target set.

As SHOOP A PROFESSIONAL LAW CORPORATION also discussed in previous blogs, the Consumer Product Safety ACT (CPSA) requires manufacturers, distributors and retailers to report to the Commission immediately (as in within 24 hours) after it obtains information reasonably supporting the conclusion that a product defect could create a substantial product hazard, or an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death. In agreeing to the settlement, Henry Gordy denies CPSC staff allegations as to the existence of a defect or that it knowingly violated the law.
