Chuck E. Cheese Tambourines Recalled

Campbell, CA (SafetyAlerts) - The Dennis Foland Inc. Merchandising Service is recalling approximately 21,000 Chuck E. Cheese tambourines because of sharp points and small parts.

The tambourines being recalled are orange and white with a red, black, yellow and gray picture of Chuck E. Cheese on the top surface and cymbals attached to the side of the tambourine with wire.

When the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) tested the tambourines in accordance with the regulations under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, the plastic tambourine broke and the wire holding the metal cymbals to the side of the tambourine broke off. The cymbals could present a choking hazard and the wire parts could cause puncture or laceration injuries.

Since 1987 these tambourines were sold nationwide through Chuck E. Cheese and Showbiz Pizza Restaurants for approximately $1.50 each.

To date neither the CPSC nor Dennis Foland Inc. Merchandising Service is aware of any injuries involving the tambourine. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent any possibility of injury.

These potentially hazardous toys were identified during a joint CPSC/U.S. Customs Service surveillance program conducted at the Port of San Francisco, California.

Consumers having these Chuck E. Cheese tambourines should take them away from children and return them to the Chuck E. Cheese or Showbiz Pizza Restaurant where purchased for a full refund. Consumers who have any questions about the recall should call Dennis Foland Inc. at (408) 379-8800.
