Baby Cookie Monster toys sold at Wal-Mart are being recalled because of a choking hazard.
The small felt fabric cookie attached to the plush toy’s hand can be removed easily and ingested by young children, posing a choking hazard.
This recall involves the Baby Cookie Monster plush toy packaged with certain Sesame Beginnings Make Music Together DVDs. The blue plush toy has a small, felt fabric cookie attached to its hand. The plush toy and DVD are packaged in a yellow and green box with the words “Sesame Beginnings” and “Make Music Together” printed on the front. The product is labeled for children ages 6 months and up.
The toys were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from March 2006 to July 2006 for about $15.
Using scissors, consumers should immediately remove the felt cookie and its connecting thread from the plush toy. Once detached, the felt cookie and thread should be disposed of immediately.
