Stroller bar recalled for choking danger

An activity bar for strollers is being recalled because a piece of fabric on the bar can detach and can pose a choking hazard, Health Canada says.

Around 630 of the Taggies Strollin' Along Activity Bar by International Playthings were sold in Canada between February 2007 and July 2008 at children's specialty and toy stores across the country.

Customers should immediately take the bar away from children and can contact International Playthings to receive information on receiving a replacement item.

The item is a multicoloured plastic bar (item # E00907; UPC 020373009073) with a yellow giraffe, a purple hippopotamus and a blue elephant on it. The animal figures are attached to a 30 centimetre long elliptical base, which attaches to the stroller.

The shiny material found on the stuffed elephant's ear on the activity bar can detach and pose a choking hazard for infants.

International Playthings has received reports of three children mouthing the fabric.

No injuries have been reported from using the product.

Consumers can call International Playthings at (800) 445-8347 for more information.
