EvenFlo toy phone recalled due to choking hazard
if you have the toy pictured here in your home, take note. This Evenflo Switch-A-Roo Telephone has been recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission because it can pose a choking hazard. A mirror decal attached to the toy can peel away. While there have been no reported injuries, the agency is taking no chances and is recalling the toys sold between October 2008 and June 2009. About 25,000 were sold during that period. The phones, which were manufactured in China, cost about $8 and were sold at many stores nationwide including Toys R Us.
If you have one, peel off the mirror decal immediately and dispose of it. For more information, call Evenflo at 1-800-233-5921 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. est Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web site.
The CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports related to this product recall or that involve a different hazard with the same product. Go here to tell your story.
