Children’s Light-Up Magic Wand Recalled for Choking Hazard
A children’s light-up magic wand has been recalled because of choking and ingestion hazards, according to a release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The battery cover on the fuchsia colored toy can reportedly come open, causing the wand’s button-cell batteries to fall out. Children can potentially ingest the small batteries and choke. The recall was announced in late December, just days before the Christmas holiday.
The CPSC indicates that the toy wand is manufactured by Toysmith of Sumner, Washington, and was made in China. It is pink in color and has a star at the top that displays a flashing light and plays music. Toysmith recalled the item after receiving a report about a child who encountered a battery from the wand and swallowed it. The child required medical attention to remove the battery.
The light-up wand was sold in Carter’s stores and at several other retail stores in the United States and Canada, including grocery stores, toy stores, hobby stores, and gift shops. It was on shelves between June 2018 and October 2019 and retailed for about $5. Approximately 58,000 of the wands sold in the U.S. are being recalled, as well as 204 units sold in Canada.
Toysmith says that toys with date codes between March 2018 and June 2019 are included in the recall. The date codes range from 3/18/373 to 6/19/373. The UPC code for the wand is 085761220034. The CPSC says that consumers who find they have a recalled wand should immediately place the toy out of their children’s reach and return the toy to the store of purchase for a full refund.
