A large recall of Toy Keys with Remote has been implemented in the United States and Canada, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced. About 1,080,000 Toy Keys with Remote have been recalled in the U.S.; another 3,600 have been recalled in Canada.
The defective Toy Keys with Remote were manufactured in China; imported by Battat Inc., of Plattsburgh, New York; and sold at retailers nationwide and online sellers from April 2010 to May 2011 for B. FunKeys, and from January 2006 to December 2009 for Parents Magazine keys for about $9.
The metal toy keys and the plastic key ring can break, posing a choking hazard. To date, CPSC and Battat have received 17 reports of keys breaking, and 14 reports of key rings breaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall includes all B. FunKeysâ„¢ with factory code H58000-01 or H26300-01, and ParentsÂ® Magazine Electronic Keys with factory code H26300-01. The factory code is located on the back of the remote.
