F.W. Woolworth Corporation Recalls "Pom Pom Pet" Assortments

New York, NY (SafetyAlerts) -F.W. Woolworth Corporation is voluntarily recalling 34,000 craft "Pom Pom Pet" Assortments, Item #50303, which it first distributed nationwide in late January 1990 because of small parts that could be fatal to young children. This recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The feet and eye components are small parts that could detach and become a choking or aspiration hazard to young children.

The craft Pom Pom Assortment consists of two-inch tall fuzzy chickens, rabbits, or ducks packaged two per plastic bag. The label on the package states "D/173 C/561 SKU 86442 Distributed by F. W. Woolworth Co. New York, N.Y. 10279 Made in Taiwan" and sold for 99 cents per bag.

Consumers should take the item from young children immediately and return them to the Woolworth store where purchased for a refund.

CPSC discovered these potentially hazardous toys during a joint import surveillance program with the U.S. Customs Service in New Orleans.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries or complaints involving these toy animals. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.
