WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of about 15,000 Baby Einstein-brand crib toys due to a safety hazard.
The recalled Baby Neptune Soothing Seascape toys were manufactured in China and imported by Kids II Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga. The CPSC said anchors that hold woven fabric straps to the back of the plastic molded turtle toy can detach, posing a choking hazard.
Kids II said it had received 23 reports of anchors breaking, although no injuries occurred.
The toy turtle has a stuffed fabric head and feet. Model number 30858 is printed on the label on the leg of the turtle. Only crib toys manufactured in October 2007, with date code BJ7 printed on the back of the battery compartment, are included in the recall.
The toys were sold nationwide November 2007 through January 2008 for between $25 and $30.
Consumers are advised to contact Kids II at 866-203-6788 to receive a free replacement toy.
