August 14, 2012: Toysmith Recalls Animal Snap Bracelets
About 89,500 animal snap bracelets have been recalled due to laceration hazards.
What’s the Deal?
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Toysmith of Sumner, Washington, has recalled about 89,500 animal snap bracelets. The metal snap band can wear through the fabric covering resulting in exposing sharp edges and posing a laceration hazard. The firm has received eight reports of injuries including lacerations.
Do You Own It?
This recall includes animal snap bracelets in assorted metallic fabrics with animal figures, including: seahorse, frog, snake, starfish, crab, lizard, dolphin, and fish. Manufacturing date codes between 07/11 and 01/12 are printed on a sewn-in label found on the inside of the bracelet. The label includes the Toysmith name and address. A round paper tag is attached to the product with the product name, Toysmith information, the words “Item # 2360 Animal Snap Bracelet,” SKU number, and bar code. The bracelets sold at Cost Plus World Market, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, and other retailers from September 2011 to February 2012 for about $3.

Consumers should return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund. For additional information, contact Toysmith at (800) 356-0474 between 8 AM and 5PM PST, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.toysmith.com.
