Hallmark Has Recalled Harry Potter Key Chains

Kansas City, MO (SafetyAlerts) - Hallmark Cards Inc. has recalled about 7,000 Harry Potter key chains. The key chains can leak petroleum distillates, which can pose an ingestion hazard to children.

CPSC and Hallmark have not received any reports of incidents. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The Harry Potter Magic Potion Bottle key chain is made of styrene and has a "potion bottle" filled with purple-colored mineral oil and red- colored water. The 3-inch tall key chain has a green base and a gold top, and has the letters "HP" printed on the bottle.

Hallmark, Hallmark Card, Wal-Mart, grocery, drug, and gift stores nationwide sold the key chains from October 2001 through November 2001 for about $5.

Consumers should take the key chains away from children immediately and contact Hallmark at (800) 425-5627 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for a full refund
