Additional information:2519 - MonsterBallYoYoBallToy
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following products are subject to this recall:

  • Monster Ball Yo-Yo Ball Toys made of soft plastic. The Balls have a soft stretchy plastic body and a stretchable plastic finger loop. Each Ball also has a “monster” face and 12 hard plastic drop-shaped weighted hands of differing colors. The Yo-Yo Balls are about the size of a softball and are sold in various colors. The body of the Ball lights up with flashing lights when bounced on a surface.

According to Health Canada, Yo-yo type balls and similar products are banned in Canada because they present a hidden risk of strangulation to children. Also, the weighted hands on these balls can become detached, thereby releasing small metallic beads which can pose choking and aspiration hazards to children.

Health Canada has been made aware of one incident in Canada where the weighted hands became detached from this product.
