About 19,400 darts sold in the U.S. (In addition to 4,048 sold in Canada) from Crown Darts UK are being recalled.
According to the statement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, lawn darts are banned in the U.S. due to the serious risk of skull punctures and other serious injuries, particularly to children. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The recalled lawn dart sets were sold for 2, 4 and 5 players and contained 4, 8 and 10 units (darts) respectively, as well as individual spare darts. The lawn darts are about a foot long, have polypropylene flights (fins) designed to be held at the tail, with a brass body ending in a stainless steel spigot (peg). The lawn darts were sold in assorted colors. The Crown Darts logo is printed on the product.
The items were sold online at www.crowndarts.com from May 2004 through June 2020 for between $15 and $139.
