Cherish Animal Bath Toys

Product description

This recall involves bath toys consisting of five ducks of various sizes. The ducks are yellow with orange beaks and blue eyes, and there is a squeaker reed embedded in the underside of the duck. The back of the package is labelled with item number 3448 and universal product code (UPC) 6903284315027.

Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the bath toys do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for toys.  The squeaker inside the ducks can be easily removed; these small parts pose a choking hazard to young children.

As of March 20, 2018, Nova Discount Hub has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
