This recall includes about 30,000 light-up soft plastic toy frogs and ducks. The toys light up when the sensors on the bottom of the product are touched or placed in water. The frog comes in green and the ducks come in yellow, pink and clear. The toys are approximately 2.25 inches in length and 1.5 inches in height. There is a round tag attached to the product with the UPC number 2424 5159.
The government recall comes after a determination that the metal conductor pin on the bottom of the toys can come out, posing a choking hazard. Sadly, choking hazards in children’s toys and other juvenile products account for numerous deaths and injuries each year. A toy that is dangerous because it is hazardously designed may be even more so when badly made, misleadingly advertised, inaccurately labeled, or foolishly and irresponsibly sold to or for children who are too young to appreciate the toy’s hazards or defend against them.
