Washington - Luxury German automaker Porsche on Tuesday ordered a recall of a recent model, citing safety hazards for joyriding operators and offering full refunds.

About 1700 units of the wooden toy car, "My First Porsche," which measure four inches by two inches (10 cm x 5 cm), were sold in the United States, along with another 330 in Canada, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to the commission, the wheels and axles can detach, "causing a choking hazard to young children."

There have been no reported injuries or incidents, the agency said.
