Warner Bros. Studio Store Recalls Tweety Rattles And Tweety SandalsBurbank, CA (SafetyAlerts) - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Warner Bros. Studio Store, of Burbank, Calif., (Warner Bros. Store) is recalling about 3,800 Tweety rattles and 1,000 pairs of Tweety sandals.

Tweety's bib can detach, posing a choking hazard to a young child.

Warner Bros. Stores nationwide sold the Tweety Bib, Rattle and Spoon Sets from August 1998 through January 2000 for about $15.

Sandals Recall

The Tweety sandals are girls' jelly swimwear sandals made of transparent pink plastic with embedded sparkles and a picture on the inside soles of Tweety sitting on flowers. The sandals were sold in infant sizes from 3 to 15 months. The sandals have three round plastic flowers on the top surface. The flowers can detach, posing a choking hazard to a young child.

Warner Bros. Stores nationwide sold the sandals from February 2000 through April 2000 for about $10.
