Wal-Mart recalls stuffed animals for choking hazard

Wal-Mart is recalling its stuffed Christmas beagles because children could choke on pompoms that could come loose from the toy, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety commission said Thursday.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The stuffed animal bears the UPC number 8 85271 90780 3 on its label.

The dog was sold at Wal-Mart stores in the U.S. from September 2006 through December 2006 for about $3 US.

Consumers should take the toy away from young children and return it to the retailer for a full refund.
