Throw out yo-yo ball toy

Health Canada has recalled 84 soft plastic yo-yo toys because this kind of product is banned in Canada, due to the possible strangulation danger to young children.

There have been no reports of injuries.

The toy, available in a variety of colours, has a ball-like end shaped like an animal such as a pig or a rabbit. The animals are covered in short, stretchy plastic cylinders that resemble hair, and have a stretchable plastic finger loop. They have the universal product code UPC 05842089222.

Consumers should cut the cord off of the toy and throw out both parts in regular household garbage.
