Munchkin Inc. is recalling appoximately 72,000 units of its Waterpede bath toy because the product can break apart and expose small pieces that pose a choking hazard to young children.
Thus far, there has been one report of the toy breaking apart and exposing small beads; however, there have been no injuries reported at this time.
The products were sold at Babies R Us, Target, and other retailers across the U.S. from September 2015 to January 2018 for between $5 and $7. Consumers are being urged to immediately take the bath toy away from young children and contact Munchkin for a free replacement bath toy of comparable value.
