the package reads in part: " . . . Chilton Toys Evenflo Doll Care Set . . . Made in
China . . . for ages 3 and up."
This recall applies only to toy nursing bottles and does not apply in any way to regular
size Evenflo nursing bottles. The toy Evenflo Mini Nursers, imported by Chilton-Globe,
Inc., were sold nationwide at a variety of retail stores for $1.00 to $2.00 each from the
mid 1980s through December 1991.
Consumers are urged to take the nursers away from children under three years of age
immediately and if purchased after January 1, 1990, return the nursers, postage pre-paid,
