Squirting Fish Bath Toy Recalled

Squirt toy recallKentwood, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Sassy Inc. has announced a voluntary recall to replace about 370,000 squirting fish in the Scoop Pour 'N Squirt and Bath Time Pals bath toys.

The fish's size, texture, shape and easy compressibility make it possible for an infant to compress the toy and place it in his or her mouth. If the toy reaches the back of the mouth and expands, it may block the child's airway.

CPSC and Sassy are aware of one report of an infant who put the toy fish in his mouth gagged and vomited and two other reports of infants who put the toy fish in their mouths and started to choke. Sassy is working cooperatively with the CPSC in taking action to correct this problem.

The Scoop Pour 'N Squirt bath toy set has a large, colorful plastic fish-shaped scoop with a green textured handle and a spout for pouring water. This set comes with two small plastic squirting fish. The Bath Time Pals bath toy set comes with one squirting frog, two squirting pearls and two squirting fish. The toys comply with toy safety regulations.

Mass merchandise stores and toy stores sold these toys nationwide from February 1999 to December 2000 for about $5.

Consumers should immediately take these squirting fish away from young children and throw them away. For additional information or to receive replacement squirt toys contact Sassy at (800) 764-8323.
