The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Agency, in collaboration with Rhino Toys, Inc., has issued a recall notice for Beado handheld bead play toys. The toy, which poses a potential choking hazard, can be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Affecting approximately 5,500 units, the Beado toy’s adhesive may not be sufficient enough to maintain a connection between various plastic wires, which may cause the toy’s beads to fall off. The recall affects Beado handheld beaded play toys with the model number 1501 and the date code 02910 04323A. The product measures six inches in diameter, and contains four blue plastic “hubs,” six white plastic “wires,” and 12 multi-colored beads.
Products whose date codes differ from 02910, or have a black mark next to the 02910 date code with an inspection sticker, are exempt. For detailed examples, click here.
