Cra-Z-Art Snoopy Sno-Cone Machines with one of three batch numbers–BCH003005A28-0812, BCHTRU001A17-0812, or BCHTRU004A16-0712—printed on the back of the white plastic doghouse and on the side of the box have been recalled. A brass rivet can fall out of the sno-cone machine’s ice-shaving cylinder and into a sno-cone, posing a risk of injury to the mouth or teeth.
The plastic sno-cone machines are white in the shape of a doghouse with a red roof and red shovel. Snoopy is on the doghouse and Charlie Brown and Lucy images are on the front along with a snowman. A metal ice-shaving cylinder in the middle of the sno-cone machine dispenses ice shavings out of the front. The words “Snoopy” and “Sno-Cones” are on the front of the machine, and “Cra-Z-Art” is on the back.
LaRose Industries LLC has received 64 reports of brass rivets falling out of the sno-cone machine’s ice-shaving cylinder, but no injuries have been reported. Consumers should stop using the recalled sno-cone machines immediately and contact LaRose Industries for a free repair kit, which includes a new ice shaving cylinder. The recalled sno-cone machines should not be returned to the store where purchased.
