Bath toys recalled for choking hazard

Quebec-based K.I.D. Toy Inc. is recalling about 240 bath toy sets because pieces may come loose, creating a choking hazard, Health Canada said Monday.

The recall affects the 1-2-3 Countn' Fun Bath Toy sets with the item number 7623B. About 240 toys were sold in Canada from August 2007 until March 2008.

Health Canada has learned of one incident involving parts separating from the toys though no injuries were reported. The federal agency also warns the plastic pouch that holds the bath toys is large enough to fit over a child's head and is not clearly marked as a suffocation danger to children.

Caregivers should take the toy away from children and contact the company for a refund.
