December 28, 2000Squirting Fish Bath Toy Recalled
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.
