Recalls Stuffed Toy Because Of Potential Choking Hazards WASHINGTON, DC. -- Applause, Inc. of Woodland Hills, CA, is voluntarily recalling a 28-inch stuffed "Sesame Street" figure, "Cookie Monster," with rattle eyes because of a potential choking hazard to young children. The stuffed toy being recalled is identified as "Cookie Monster" (Model #14087, Made in Korea) and is made of blue plush fur. The large eyes of the toy shatter easily, allowing small pellets to fall out which could be ingested by small children and cause choking. Approximately 1,908 of these stuffed toys were sold in retail stores nationwide from May, 1988 through December, 1988 for approximately $60.00 each. While neither the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) nor Applause, Inc. is aware of any injuries associated with the stuffed toy, this recall is being taken to prevent the possibility of injury. Consumers having the stuffed toys should take them away from children and return them to the retail store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers who have any questions about this recall should call Applause, Inc. at 1-800-777-3998 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
