One Step Ahead of Lake Bluff, Illinois, is recalling about 2,700 Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toys, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
The fabric covering the Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toys stacking ringâ€™s center pole can come apart at the seam exposing the foam material inside. The foam material poses choking and aspiration hazards to young children. To date, the firm has received one report of a 10-month-old child mouthing the toyâ€™s foam material. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toys, which were manufactured in China. The multi-colored toy has five plush stacking rings that stack and rest on a stationary turtle base. The rings represent different animals including a frog, dog, cat, rabbit, mouse, and chick. A fish is on top of the center pole. Each ring makes a different sound: Rattle, jingle, crinkle, and squeak. â€œOne Step Aheadâ€ is printed on a white tag attached to the toy. The toy measures about 19 inches high and 10 inches wide when assembled.
The recalled Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toys were sold for about $35 at One Step Aheadâ€™s catalog and on the firmâ€™s website at www.onestepahead.com from October 2008 through April 2010.
The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately take the recalled Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toys away from children and return the toyâ€™s center pole to One Step Ahead for a $50 merchandise certificate to be applied toward the purchase of another product(s) sold in the One Step Ahead catalog or online at www.onestepahead.com. The firm is directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled toy.
