by in choking hazard, Infantino, Recalls


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Infantino have issued a recall on about 28,000 lion teethers because the plastic nose can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Infantino® has received eight reports of the nose detaching, including one report of a child gagging on the bitten off nose.

This recall involves Infantino® lion teethers. The yellow and orange plastic teethers have date codes 6116, 6129, 6158, 6137, 0606, 0806, 0906, and 1006. The date codes are located on the back of the lion’s head, above the Infantino® logo. Lion teethers with other date codes are not included in this recall.

The toys were sold at Babies “R” Us, Pottery Barn Kids and other specialty stores nationwide from June 2006 through December 2007 for about $5.

Parents are being asked to take the recalled toys away from young children immediately and contact Infantino® for a replacement teether or a product of equal value.

You can contact them toll-free at (888) 808-3111 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.service.infantino.com
