Wang's International Recalls Craft Dolls
WASHINGTON, DC - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Wang's International, Inc., Memphis, Tennessee is voluntarily recalling two styles of its craft dolls. These dolls have arms which may be pulled off and present a choking hazard to young children. Neither CPSC nor Wang's International know of any injuries involving these craft dolls.
Wang's International packaged these unclothed soft plastic dolls in clear plastic bags with labels. One doll is a 4 1/2-inch Cupid doll #PDT 3538. The other is a 5 1/2-inch doll #PDT631D, which has red hair, freckles and red painted-on shoes. The identification numbers only appear on the package labels and not on the dolls themselves. These craft dolls were sold through craft stores nationwide, retailing for approximately $1.00 each.
Consumers who purchased these dolls should take them away from young children and return the dolls to the place of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price.
If you have any questions, call Wang's International, Inc. toll-free at 1-800-824-0467.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please tell us about your experience with the product on SaferProducts.gov
CPSC is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $900 billion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals - contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
