Virginia-based Swimways Corp. is recalling its Skippy pool toys because parts may break off and cut the user, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The company warns the tongues on the fish-shaped toys may detach forcefully. A total of 24 incidents have been reported, including five injuries to children.
The recall affects about 31,000 toys sold in the U.S. from February 2007 through September 2007 for about $10 US.
Consumers should take the toys away from children and return them to the stores for free replacements.
