Plush Toys by Carousel Softoys Inc.

Product description

This recall involves stuffed plush animals in an assortment of shapes: elephant, racoon, dog, monkey, frog, panda, mouse, rabbit, and bear. The toys are 15cm in height and have a red ribbon tied around their neck. Each animal also has a small loop attached to its head, which allows the toy to be hung for display.

The recalled plush toys have a hang tag with the model number 413-6ASA and "Carousel Softoys Inc." printed on it.

Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has identified that the eyes on the plush toys can detach easily; these small parts pose a choking hazard to young children.

Neither Health Canada nor Caravan Concessions Carousel Softoys Inc. has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these toys.
