Discovery Toys, the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) and Health Canada have announced a voluntary recall on Toddler Talk Toy Mobile Phones. The clear plastic antenna can break off, which poses a choking hazard to young children.
Around 2,900 units in the United States and 700 in Canada are affected. Discovery Toys has received three reports of the toy telephone’s antenna broking off. One child was found mouthing the toy phone’s antenna but it was removed by his mother.
This product was made in China and sold by Discovery Toys Educational Consultants nationwide from September 2010 through November 2010 for about $18.
The toy involved in this recall is a red and blue plastic battery-operated toy mobile phone with a small, clear antenna, buttons numbered “1, 2, 3, 4 and Play,” a screen with a boy’s face and the words “hello! hola! bonjour!” Only model number 1231 is involved in this recall. The model number is printed on the toy’s packaging. “Discovery Toys” is stamped into the red plastic on the back of the toy.
The product should immediately be taken away from young children. Discovery Toys should be contacted for instructions on how to return the item for a replacement toy.
