February 8, 20013.8 Million "Planet
Discovery" Kid's Meal Toys Recalled
Atlanta, GA (SafetyAlerts)
- Chick-fil-A Inc., said today it is recalling about 3.8 million "Planet
Discovery" Kid's Meal toys. The toys were distributed at 800 Chick-fil-A restaurants
nationwide during January 2001 and during January 1999. The suction cup on the toy can
come off, presenting a choking hazard to young children.
Chick-fil-A has received seven reports that the suction cup on the toy came off. In one
case, a child began choking but the parent removed the suction cup before medical
treatment was needed.
The "Planet Discovery" toys are plastic disks (about 2 to 3 inches in diameter)
with a suction cup (about 1.5 inch in diameter) on the back. The toys depict all of the
planets plus the moon and the sun. Each toy comes in a plastic bag labeled "Planets:
Collect Them All!" A paragraph on the bag also says: "Parents: This toy has been
safety- tested for children of all ages." The planet toy itself says "Chick-
fil-A Inc. 1999," "1998 Namkung Promotions Inc," and "China."
Parents should immediately take away the toy from young children. Throw away the toy or
return the planet toys to a Chick-fil-A restaurant for a free replacement premium or a
small Icedream®. For questions about this recall, contact Chick-fil-A toll-free at (866)
