Good news: no product recalls since 2009!
As you can see below, we’ve reached our goal every year since 2009.
We no longer sell the recalled remote from 2009 or the truck from 2002 - but the recalls still apply. Therefore, if you have such a remote or truck, please stop using it immediately and check the links below to see if it’s part of the recall.

2009: LEGO Power Functions IR Speed Remote Control
We’ve decided to recall the Power Functions IR Speed Remote Control voluntarily after having received 4 reports of the remote control heating up after batteries were inserted. No injuries have occurred.
We sold 997 units of the remote control between 8th April and 6th May 2009 - either separately (item 8879) or as part of the kits Emerald Night Train (10194) and Power Functions (8882). These remote controls were only sold directly through LEGO.com or the LEGO catalogue. They weren’t available at any retail outlets.
Is my remote control part of the recall?
If your remote control is affected, it becomes hot to the touch in the first 5 to 10 minutes when you use it for the very first time.
What should I do if my remote control is part of the recall?
Please stop using the remote control immediately and dispose of it.
2002: LEGO EXPLORE Super Truck Recall
We decided to recall the LEGO EXPLORE Super Truck 3509 voluntarily because the wheels can separate from the truck’s axles, which could be a potential hazard to children.
The LEGO EXPLORE Super Truck was made in 2002 and 2003. Only North American retailers sold it, including Toys “R” Us and Walmart.
The 40 LEGO DUPLO bricks that were packed in the cab of the truck aren’t part of the voluntary recall. They’re perfectly safe for children 18 months and up.
Is my truck part of the recall?
If your truck looks like the one in the pictures, it’s part of the recall.
What should I do if my truck is part of the recall?
Please stop playing with the truck immediately and dispose of it.
1997: LEGO Primo ‘Ladybird’ rattle
We recalled the 2093 Ladybird rattle in 1998 after we received three reports from parents that the rattle had formed a vacuum and became stuck in their child’s mouth. In each case, the parents had been able to remove the toy safely and their child was unharmed. The 2093 Ladybird was first released in 1997, and sold only in Europe, but was retired following the recall in early 1998. While this toy met international safety standards, we decided to issue a full recall. From that point on, we also made our size restrictions stricter than safety legislation requirements to make sure that this never happens again.
Is my product part of the recall?
If your item has the set number 2093 then it’s part of the recall.
What should I do with my set if it’s part of this recall?
As this product was retired and recalled in 1998 it’s unlikely there are still any in use. If you do happen to have one please stop using this toy immediately and dispose of it.
