Stuffed animals pose choking hazard

Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are recalling 41,000 stuffed animals sold by Old Navy stores in Canada and the United States.

The dolls have hard button eyes that came off the toys during testing by Health Canada and thus pose a choking hazard for small children.

Old Navy voluntarily extended the product recall to include similar toys sold in the U.S.

So far, there have been no reported injuries related to the dolls.

About 5,400 of the cuddly dolls were sold in Canada in nine different shapes including a rabbit, dog, reindeer, dove, penguin and two unnamed creatures.

The toys are identified by a style number that is printed on a white label sewn into the side seam of the toy.

Consumers should immediately take the dolls away from children. Old Navy is offering a full refund for the stuffed animals with an addition $5 gift card if the toy is returned prior to July 1.
