More than 500,000 wind-up musical toys are being recalled because of a choking hazard. The stuffed animals come in a variety of animal characters and colors.
The recalled Preferred Kids Wind-Up Musical Toys have a metal post and /or handle that can detach and get stuck in a child’s throat if they put the part in their mouth.
The firm has received six reports of parts from the wind-up handle detaching from the toy. No injuries have been reported so far.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled toys, take them away from young children and contact Kids Preferred for a free replacement toy.
The toys were sold at Carter’s, Target, Walmart and other stores nationwide and online from January 2016 through August 2017 for between $11 and $20.
