The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in conjunction with the Manhattan Group LLC, of Minneapolis, Minn., has announced a voluntary recall of about 2,700 Snuggly Ellie Activity Toys because the wooden ring can break into small pieces, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Manhattan Group has received one report of the wooden ring breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the My Snuggly Ellie Activity Toy. The toy is a plush brown elephant with white crinkle ears. There is a green hanging loop on top of its head allowing it to be a stroller or crib attachment. On the stomach there is a mini mirror while a teether and wooden ring hang below its body. The item number is 212520 and can be found on the small white tag sewn into the bottom of the toy.
Consumers should immediately take the toy away from young children and return the toy to where it was purchased for a full refund. They can also contact Manhattan Group toll-free at (800) 541-1345 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s web site at www.manhattantoy.com and click on “RECALLS” for additional information.
