The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a notice that Henry Gordy International, Inc., has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $1,100,000 for knowingly failing to report a safety defect and hazard with the “Auto Fire Target Set” as required by law, and for making a material misrepresentation to the CPSC during an investigation.

The CPSC alleges that Henry Gordy knew on or about 2006 that the target set was defective and could cause harm but failed to report this to the CPSC. The toy is considered defective because the plastic toy dart can be inhaled into the throat of a child and prevent them from being able to breathe. Henry Gordy also did not report all if the information they were aware of to the CPSa during the investigation.

Family Dollar Stores, Inc., and the CPSC announced the recall of 1.8 million Auto Fire Target Sets in May, 2010, because Henry Gordy refused to issue a recall. By that time, three deaths were connected to the defective toy. The target set was sold exclusively through Family Dollar stores between September 2005 and January 2009. The set came with a toy guns, soft pliable toy darts and a small target.
