Firms Recall Toys: About 10,000 toy cars and 6,939 dolls are being withdrawn from the market because small parts on them could be detached and cause youngsters to choke, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said. The commission said the companies selling the products agreed to the voluntary recalls after the potential dangers were discovered. It said no children were known to have choked on parts from any of the products. The announcement said McCrory Corp. of York, Pa., was recalling about 10,000 model 25 "Play Cars" because the tires could detach and be a choking hazard. The cars, made in Argentina, were sold between Sept. 1, 1989, and Dec. 12, 1991, in stores operated under various names by McCrory. Jak Pak Inc. of Milwaukee is recalling its Rain or Shine Dolls, model JP 0137, because their movable arms separated when tested by the commission, the announcement said. The dolls, with removable plastic raincoats, were sold nationwide from January, 1990, through December, 1991, for about $2 to $3 each.
