DSI Toys, Inc. Recalls Toy Kittens

Toy kittenHouston, TX   - DSI Toys, Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 238,000 stuffed toy kittens. These toys contain contaminated water that, if contacted, could cause illness to children.

CPSC and DSI Toys have not received any reports of illness resulting from contacting contaminated water from these toys. This voluntary recall is being conducted as a precaution.

The Kitty Kitty Kittens are about 12-inches long. The kitten toys make a purring noise when they are petted on the head. They come in six styles: Buttons, Tiger, Calico, Mittens, Tawny and Fluffy. The kitten's name and item number, "16400," are printed on a hangtag attached to its ear. A tag attached to the toy reads, "DSI TOYS, INC." and "MADE IN CHINA." The water in the kitten toy is intended to make it feel more lifelike.

Discount, specialty, and toy stores nationwide sold the kitten toys from September 2000 through May 2001 for between $10 and $13.

Parents and caregivers should take these kitten toys away from children immediately, and call DSI Toys to receive a free replacement toy. For more information, call DSI Toys at (800) 628-8882 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
