Hasbro has announced a recall of its Nerf N-Strike Recon Blasters. Officials say a child's skin can get caught in the toy's plunger, causing injury to the face, neck and/or chest. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Hasbro has received 46 reports of injury to kids between the ages of 4 and 12, resulting in bruising, abrasions, pinch marks, blood blisters and welts.

The recall involves the Nerf N-Strike Recon CS-6 Blasters for children age 6 and up. The toy is yellow with a black handle and orange plunger, trigger, and reload clip.

Model number 63552 and UPC codes 653569272021 and 653569311218 can be found on the packaging. Only blasters with an exposed orange plunger are included in this recall.

The toys were sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Toys "R" Us, discount stores and toy stores nationwide from November 2007 through August 2008.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately and contact Hasbro for a free cylindrical cover to prevent additional injuries.
