Canada/Ottawa: CTG Brands Inc. recalls an estimated 5,000 Floating Duck Toy Sets due to risk of small component detachment and consequential choking hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/miHO3077i0y
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain Floating Duck Toy Sets sold in a set of three (3) Ducks.
- One (1) large Duck and two (2) smaller Ducks are included in a netted bag. The Ducks themselves are the standard yellow with orange beaks and there is a “squeaker” reed embedded in the underside of the Duck. The cardboard tag attached to the Duck Toys is labelled “3 pcs Set canards flottant” with item number “05338” and a UPC of 062823053380 also printed on it.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.
According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has determined that these Floating Duck Toys do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for toys. Specifically, the squeaker reed inside each Duck can be easily removed and once liberated, the small parts pose a choking hazard to young children.
As of November 30, 2016, CTG Brands has received no reports of incidents or injuries.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Floating Duck Toys, please do not use them nor let your child play with them. Instead, kindly return the Toys to the store or distributor where you purchased it for a full refund.
