CPSC, Hebron Imports Announce Pom Pom Drum Toy Recall

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Hebron Imports Inc. of Chicago, Ill., is voluntarily recalling approximately 925 Pom Pom Drum toys (#808) imported from China. Small plastic balls in the drum separate and release small parts that present a choking hazard to young children.

The Pom Pom Drum is clear plastic with a white bottom. Two white metal bands with purple, yellow, pink, green, and orange shapes encircle the top and bottom of the drum. The drum contains ten plastic balls in red, yellow, green, blue, and pink. The drum set comes with a green and orange plastic stand and two green plastic drumsticks. The toy is packaged in a cardboard box that is labeled in part, "POM POM DRUM MADE IN CHINA NO. 808".

Pom Pom Drums were sold between January 1993 and December 1994 for $3.99 each at Econo, Blue Island, Elgin D/C Land, Famous Outlet, Discountland, and LoBuc Discount in Illinois and Super Outlet in Wisconsin.

Consumers who have the Pom Pom Drum toys are urged to take them away from children immediately and return the toy to store where it was purchased for a full refund. Consumers who have questions about this recall may contact Hebron Imports Inc. toll-free at (312) 202-0100.

Neither CPSC nor Hebron Imports Inc. is aware of any injuries involving these toy drums. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.
