Health Canada is recalling a toy called Plush Animal Characters, marketed by DK Canada Trading Ltd., because it poses a choking hazard to young children.
Testing by Health Canada showed the eyes and nose of the toy may detach.
The toy is a small stuffed animal covered with multi-coloured shaggy fur. The eyes of the toy are made of black rigid plastic and the nose has a rigid plastic orange bead at its end.
The toy makes a squeaking sound when it is shaken. It's about 12 cm high and six cm in diameter. A small suction cup is attached to the head of the toy by a short cord.
The product is identified as item number DK 3000.
About 285 of the plush toys were sold at various retail stores in British Columbia and Alberta between January 2006 and November 2008
Health Canada is advising consumers to take the toy away from children and dispose of it in their regular household garbage.
For more information, call DK Canada Trading Ltd at 1-604-299-8804.
