Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves certain batch/lots of children’s Bath Toys, as follows

  • ALEX branded Hoops for the Tub Bath Toys, consisting of three (3) soft plastic balls with a squirting feature in assorted colours, along with a basketball net with two red (2) suction cups. They were sold with a model/item number of 694, a batch/lot number of ALEX 32516-P1O1694 and a UPC of 731346069405

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 plastic Bath Toys do not meet Canadian Phthalates regulations and may pose a chemical hazard under Canadian legislation. Specifically, these Bath Toys contain a Phthalate, Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate (“DEHP”), that exceeds the allowable limit.

Studies suggest that certain Phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing Phthalates are sucked, chewed or similarly treated for extended periods.
