Product name Model Toy Cars
Description The Model 8 Roadster is about 26-inches long with a red steel body and a red rubber horn on a black steering wheel. The words "Radio Flyer" and the number "8" appear on both sides of the riding toy. Roadsters included in this recall have a date of manufacture of 12/2001 or earlier and have a "horn symbol" embossed on the red rubber horn. A label with the date of manufacture is located on the bottom of the Roadster. The label has the letters "MD" followed by a date code that represents the month and year of manufacture (for example, MD 12/2001 is for a manufacture date of December 2001). 
Problem A child can pull the horn from the steering wheel, and a small part inside poses a choking hazard to young children.
