The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Toysmith, today announced a voluntary recall of about 89,500 Animal Snap Bracelets because the metal snap band can wear through the fabric covering resulting in exposing sharp edges and posing a laceration hazard.
The firm has received eight reports of injuries including lacerations.
This recall includes Animal Snap Bracelets in assorted metallic fabrics with animal figures, including: Seahorse, Frog, Snake, Starfish, Crab, Lizard, Dolphin and Fish. Manufacturing date codes between 07/11 and 01/12 are printed on a sewn-in label found on the inside of the bracelet. The label includes the Toysmith name and address. A round paper tag is attached to the product with the product name, Toysmith information, the words “Item # 2360 Animal Snap Bracelet,” SKU number and bar code.
Parents are being asked to return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund or contact Toysmith at (800) 356-0474 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.toysmith.com
