Health Canada recalls children's plush toys due to choking hazard


Health Canada is recalling a pair of children’s plush wind up toys due to a choking hazard.

The agency says the metal post or handle of the wind up mechanism on Carter’s Lamb Waggy Musical Lamb and Guess How Much I Love You Big Nutbrown Hare, Little Nutbrown Hare Waggy Musical toys can detach. This poses a choking hazard to young children.

The first toy is a white plush standing lamb with grey feet, mint stars appliquéd on the lamb’s left side and a silver colored metal wind up post and handle is located on the lamb’s left side.

The second toy is a tan plush mama and baby bunny with embroidered lettering on the mama’s right foot and a sliver colored metal wind up post and handle is located on the Mama’s backside.

The UPC and batch codes of the toys affected can be found on the Health Canada website.

Approximately 1,038 of the toys, which were manufactured in China, were sold in Canada between March and August 2017

Health Canada says it has received one report of the wind up mechanism detaching in Canada as of September 29. There have been no reports of injuries to date.
