Easy Aces, Inc. "Boo Pumpkin" Recalled

Providence, RI (SafetyAlerts) - Easy Aces, Inc. is recalling 40,000 Halloween novelty items called "Boo Pumpkin" because two components (a balloon and a squeaker) could become detached and pose a fatal choking hazard to young children. This recall is being announced in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The pumpkin-shaped item is approximately two inches tall. When the pumpkin is squeezed a latex balloon in the shape of a ghost pops out of the top.

These Halloween toys were sold nationwide between August and November 1989 for approximately 75 cents each.

The Americans for Democratic Action identified this potentially hazardous toy as part of its Holiday Toy Safety initiative.

Consumers are urged to take these toys away from young children and return them to the retailer where purchased for a refund of the purchase price.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact Easy Aces at (401) 272-1500.

Neither the CPSC nor Easy Aces, Inc. is aware of any injuries involving this toy.
