Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves two (2) models of the Juratoys Fishing Game, Sardines and Starfish.

In the Fishing Game, a player picks up a toy “fish” using a play fishing rod with a magnetic worm:

  • The Sardine Fishing Game has a red and white sardine with a yellow eye painted on a sardine-shaped tin and has product number, “J08152” printed on the bottom of the container at the tail, and on the back of one of the fish pieces.
  • The Starfish Fishing Game has an orange “starfish” painted on a starfish-shaped tin with a product number, “J08153” printed on the bottom of the container and on the back of one of the fish pieces. Each set comes with two wooden fishing rods and several wooden fish with a magnetic button in the middle.

The lid of each tin package has the brand, “Janod®” printed on it.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional variations of the recalled Toys are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the CPSC, the plastic “worm” at the end of the fishing pole line of this Toy can separate, producing small parts that pose a choking hazard to children. Additionally, the small magnet inside the worm can liberate. Swallowing multiple magnets can result in serious internal injury.

If a child swallows more than one magnet, the magnets can stick together across the walls of the child’s intestine or other digestive tissue, which can lead to internal injuries and even death. These magnets may need emergency surgical intervention to remove.

In this recall, the US firm has received an estimated 417 reports of the plastic “worm” at the end of the fishing pole line separating and releasing small parts, including four reports of children ingesting a small part. No injuries have been reported.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession either of the recalled Fishing Game Toys, please do not use them. Kindly keep them out of the reach of young children and contact Juratoys for a prepaid shipping envelope to return the game. Juratoys will then send a $15 refund check for the Sardines game and a $20 refund check for the Starfish game. Consumers who paid more should include a receipt in the return to receive a full refund
