Roman, Inc. Issues Warning To Remove Tears From Stuffed Lambs

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Roman, Inc., Roselle, IL is issuing a warning to consumers about certain stuffed lambs imported from Korea.

Approximately 7,000 lambs were sold nationwide during 1989. Each stuffed lamb has a small clear plastic tear attached beneath the left eye that can be easily pulled off and ingested by children.

These beige and white lambs stand 8-1/2 inches tall, have two dark glass eyes, a yellow nose, a band-aid on the left front leg and a circular pin that reads "Jesus make me new again!"

The lambs sold for approximately $13 each.

Neither the CPSC nor the company is aware of any injuries involving this product. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Consumers are urged to remove and throw away the small plastic tear.

The potentially hazardous lambs were identified at the Port of Chicago during a joint CPSC/U.S. Customs Service surveillance program.
