The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Tupperware, today announced a voluntary recall of 24,000 Toy Maracas because the maracas can break and expose small parts, posing a choking hazard to young children. In addition, the handle poses a suffocation hazard to young children.
Tupperware has received two reports of maracas breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves blue and red toy maracas with yellow handles. The maracas were used by Tupperware representatives during sales presentations. Cut-outs in the shape of stars, squares and other geometric figures are located inside the maraca.
Consumers and Tupperware sales consultants should immediately stop using the maracas and return them to Tupperware for a refund or gift certificate. Maraca return forms can be accessed at www.tupperware.com
