45,300 Hug N' Tug Infant Toys Recalled by Sassy Inc. Over Choking Risk
The Kentwood, Michigan-based Sassy Inc. has announced the recall of Hug N’ Tug Puppy and Monkey toys under their own brand and Hug N’ Tug Monkey Toys under the Carter’s brand. An estimated 45,300 units of the infant toys are being recalled, and each was sold across the country at various retailers between August 2011 and October of this year. These toys have a clear plastic sphere containing beads, and these beads can come loose from the item and potentially be swallowed by kids, thus posing a choking risk. No kids have reportedly become injured by the toys at this time, but there have been 12 bead-release incidents reported. The toys should be removed from the grasp of kids. The company can be contacted by consumers seeking a replacement item.
