North Hills, CA—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Munchkin Inc., has voluntarily recalled about 34,000 bathtub subs over risks of injury to the consumer. The CPSC announced the recall on October 18, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the intake valve on the bottom of the submarine toy can suck up loose skin, which can pose a laceration hazard to children.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves battery-operated bathtub submarine toys. The toy is yellow, has a smiling face, turquoise windows, an orange propeller and an orange periscope that turns the toy on and off. The intake valve has a water pump that sucks in water to propel the submarine. The toy is intended for use by children during bath time.”
The bath toy was sold at mass merchandise and children’s retail stores across the U.S. from November 2009 through September 2010. The toy sold for about $7.
Consumers are advised to contact Munchkin for instructions on how to return the defective product and receive a free replacement toy.
For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Munchkin at (877) 242-3134 anytime or visit their website at http://www.munchkin.com/.
