The Betesh Group Has Recalled "Busy Bug" Plush Toys

New York, N.Y. (SafetyAlerts) - The Betesh Group has recalled about 11,200 "Busy Bug" plush toys. The antennae of the plush toy can be chewed or pulled off, posing a choking hazard to young children.

CPSC and The Betesh Group have received two reports of children gagging on the fabric antennae ends that separated from the toy.

The recalled toy is a small plush bug with two springy black antennae with orange round fabric ends. The bug has a blue stuffed round face with a red musical nose that blinks when pressed. The body of the bug is segmented in various colors and patterns. Striped elastic legs are attached to the body along with crinkly, iridescent wings. "Smart Scents," and "Made In China" are printed on a label on the side of the bug. The UPC code 778267862920 is on the packaging.

Discount department stores sold these recalled toys from August 2002 through January 2003 for about $7.

Consumers should take the plush toys away from young children and return to the place of purchase or mail the toy to The Betesh Group at One East 33rd Street, New York, NY 10016, Att: Consumer Relations, to receive a refund including postage. For additional information, contact Betesh toll free at (866) 473-0118 anytime.
