CPSC, Warner Bros. Stores Announce Recall of Tweety Key Rings

CPSC, Warner Bros. Stores Announce Recall of Tweety Key RingsWASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Warner Bros. Stores Inc., of Burbank, Calif., is recalling about 2,500 Tweety Water Timer Game Key Rings. The key rings contain ethylene glycol, commonly found in antifreeze, that could leak. Ethylene glycol can poison young children if swallowed.

CPSC and Warner Bros. Stores are not aware of any injuries involving these key rings. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The Tweety Water Timer Game Key Ring is a rectangular-shaped clear plastic container with three compartments containing a blue liquid. The middle compartment also contains a yellow wheel and a picture of Tweety at each end. When the rectangle is moved, the liquid flows freely between the compartments, spinning the wheel. A key ring is attached with a small chain. Tweety appears on the front of the key ring.

Warner Bros. Stores nationwide sold the key rings from April 1996 through April 1997 for about $5.

Consumers should take these key rings away from children immediately and return them to Warner Bros. Stores for a refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Warner Bros. Stores toll-free at (800) 795-9277, ext. 43288 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PDT Monday through Friday.
