Sandberg Manufacturing's Caterpillar Pull Toys Recalled

Chicago, IL (SafetyAlerts) - Sandberg Manufacturing Company is voluntarily recalling 1,500 Caterpillar Pull Toys because the toy may break apart during use producing small pieces of plastic, some with sharp points. The balls on the ends of the antenna may also detach presenting a choking hazard to young children.

The Caterpillar Pull Toy is made of green, orange, yellow, blue, and red plastic with two small balls on the end of two springs and a red pull string attached to the head. The carton was labeled in part "A Colorful Pull Toy, Jingle Bell Sound, Ages 1 to 3, Sandberg."

These toys were imported from Hong Kong and sold nationwide from October 1988 to May 1989.

Consumers are urged to take these toys away from young children and return them to the store where purchased for a refund of the purchase price. Consumers may also return their toys to Sandberg Manufacturing Company at 1959 West Fulton Street, Chicago, Illinois 60612. For more information consumers may call the Sandberg Company at (312) 226-2033.

Neither the CPSC nor the Sandberg Manufacturing Company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.
