HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A West Virginia mother is seeking a recall of a popular walkie-talkie after her threeyear- old’s toy apparently intercepted a profanity-laced conversation between truckers about drugs and strip clubs.Quote has been trimmed
Deborah Pancaro, 34, said she contacted Fisher-Price after she heard a conversation in which a man said “10-4" and other things that led her to believe the device was relaying a CB radio conversation.
“They said we should go smoke some weed, and were talking about being in a strip bar, some really explicit things," Pancaro said Thursday.
The walkie-talkie is sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and allows children to role-play animal rescues like the Diego character does on the cartoon series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!
The walkie-talkie is supposed to have a range of about six metres but Pancaro said she heard one of the voices say he was driving on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, about 440 kilometres north of Huntington.
