LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC, February 9, 2000 - Playskool has advised Health Canada of a voluntary recall of approximately 3,000 units of the Teethe'n Toy sold at various retail outlets throughout Canada. A portion of the teether may break apart causing small pieces of material to come loose, posing a choking hazard to younger children.
In Canada, Playskool has received four complaints, with no reported injuries.
The Teethe'n Toy, product number #3176, is age graded for children 6 months old and up. It is a soft flexible ring, with three ice-cream cone shaped teethers hanging from the ring.
