NEW YORK (AP) — More than 15,000 toy police cars are being recalled because they can come apart and pose a possible choking risk to kids.

The Police Press & Go toy car is a white and blue plastic car with the head of a police officer coming out of the roof. When the head is pressed down, the car moves forward on its own. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said it received one report of the blue hat on the police officer’s head coming off. No injuries were reported.

The car is made by toy company Schylling, which is based in Rowley, Massachusetts. Schylling is offering owners of the car a refund if they contact the company through its website, schylling.com, or call 800-767-8697.

The car was sold at toy and gift stores for $5 since April 2010. About 13,200 of the toy cars are in the U.S., and about 2,100 are in Canada, the CPSC said.
