WASHINGTON, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Chuck E. Cheese Light-up Rings and Star Glasses due to an ingestion hazard.

About 1.1 million Light-up Rings and 120,000 Star Glasses were imported from China by CEC Entertainment Inc. of Irving, Texas, and distributed as part of parent-teacher conferences and as part of birthday packages. The Light-up Rings were also sold at Chuck E. Cheese Restaurants from April 2009 through June 2010, while the Star Glasses were sold, also at Chuck E. Cheese, from April 2010 through August 2010.

The commission said the plastic casing can break, exposing batteries that are harmful if ingested.

Consumers were advised to take the toys away from children. The Light-Up Rings can be returned to any Chuck E. Cheese for a refund of $1 plus four restaurant tokens or a Soccer-Promo Cup plus four tokens. The Star Glasses can be returned for a refund of $4.99 or a Flashing Hands toy.

Consumers can call 888-778-7193 for information.
