Johnson & Johnson Baby Products Company "Spin-A- Sound" Infant Toy Recalled

Skillman, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Johnson & Johnson Baby Products Company is recalling its "Spin-A- Sound" infant toy. Although no injuries have been reported, the firm has learned that over time the red end caps on the "Spin-A- Sound" may become loose, causing the toy to come apart. This could expose children to the end caps, an ingestible small part, and the metal axle with a sharp point. The separated pieces can present a choking and/or laceration hazard.

Johnson & Johnson reports approximately 1.3 million "Spin- A-Sound" toys have been distributed nationwide since 1981. The toy was sold in retail stores and through a mail program. "Spin- A-Sound" is a rattle-like toy and was part of the firm's child development toy series. It has two large yellow wheels on each end with red plastic end caps embossed with "Johnson & Johnson." The metal axle joining the two wheels is not visible unless the toy comes apart. Three red, blue, and green plastic paddles rotate around the axle between the wheels. The toy produces a variety of clicking and rattle sounds as a child plays with it.

Johnson & Johnson is asking consumers who have a "Spin-A- Sound" toy to return it for a $10.00 refund to cover the purchase price and return postage. Enclose your name, address, approximate date of purchase and mail the toy to: Spin-A-Sound Recall, P.O. Box 11460, Des Moines, IA 50381-1460. If you have any questions, or to receive a mailer for returning the toy, call 1-800-448-8371.
