TOMY International of Oak Brook, Ill., is recalling about 14,000 Lamaze Munching Max chipmunk stuffed toys sold in the U.S. and Canada.
Parts inside the toy can break creating a sharp point that can penetrate the surface of the toy, posing a laceration hazard.
The company has received one report of a minor laceration injury to a child’s hand.
This recall involves Lamaze Munching Max chipmunk stuffed toys with item number L27578.
“Tomy,” “Lamaze” and the item number are printed on a sewn-in fabric label near the tail of the toy. The stuffed toy is multi-colored with a white clip on the head of the chipmunk.
When the clip is pulled, the chipmunk toy vibrates and simulates eating the cloth nut attached to its arm.
The toys, manufactured in China, were sold at Babies R Us, Toy R Us and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from May 2016, through July 2017, for about $16.
