The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Toys “R” Us Inc., of Wayne, N.J. has announced a voluntary recall of about 32,700 Bruin infant wiggle ball toys because the ball’s rubber knobs and plastic back can detach, posing a choking hazard to infants.
The firm has received six reports of rubber knobs breaking off, including four reports of pieces of the product found in children’s mouths.
This recall involves Bruin Infant Wiggle Ball toys also called a giggle ball. The blue ball has textured bumps for gripping and has orange, green and yellow rubber knobs around the ball. The ball wiggles, vibrates and plays three different musical tunes. It has an on/off switch and requires 3 AA batteries to operate. The recalled wiggle balls have model number 5F6342E and Toys “R” Us printed on the product.
