Description: Toys "R" Us, Inc. Recalls Siren Whistle Toy NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 28, 1989 Release # 89-081 Toys "R" Us, Inc. Recalls Siren Whistle Toy Because Of Potential Choking Hazards WASHINGTON, DC -- Toys "R" Us, Inc. of Paramus, New Jersey is voluntarily recalling 9,600 "Siren Whistle" toys because they may pose a potential choking hazard to young children. The products being recalled consist of sets of five or eight solid-color whistles (yellow, white, red, blue, orange, green, pink, and black) made of plastic measuring 1-3/4 inches long. The product is identified as "Siren Whistles", Lucky Star Enterprises, #69096 (SKNO81825) and Unique Industries, #8848 (SKNI85892), made in Taiwan. The whistles break apart easily, causing small parts to separate from the whistles which could be ingested by a child. The company discovered the problem after receiving a consumer complaint that a child sucked the metal noisemaker from the whistle into his mouth and then coughed it out. These "Siren Whistles" were sold nationwide in the first quarter of 1989 through Toys "R" Us, Inc. stores for $.89 to $.97 per package. While neither CPSC nor Toys "R" Us, Inc. is aware of any injuries associated with the toy, this corrective action is being taken to prevent the possibility. Consumers having these "Whistle Toys" should take them away from children and return them to the nearest Toys "R" Us, Inc. store for a full refund of the purchase price. Consumers who have any questions about this recall may contact Toys "R" Us, Inc. at 1-800-548-0364. [Learn More]
