RECALL: Disney Store Toy Tool Sets Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with The Disney Store, today announced the voluntary recall of about 20,000 Playhouse Disney Handy Manny Toy Tool Sets because the tools contain eyes that can separate, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The firm has received three reports of detached eyes, including two reports of children who started to choke on the pieces. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled Playhouse Disney Handy Manny Tool Set is a plastic, eight-piece toy set that includes a tool box, hammer, saw, pliers, wrench, tape measure and two screwdrivers. The name Handy Manny is embossed on one side of the tool box. The UPC (#405144100614 or #422147400633) can be located on the product�s packaging.
Parents and caregivers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and return it to any Disney Store for a full refund.
