Stuffed Animals & Bi-fold Doors Recalls

 

This press release consists of two recalls. Please choose the appropriate recall below.

- Stuffed Crab Toys - Great American Toy Co. Inc., of Port Washington, N.Y., is recalling about 18,700 stuffed crabs. The crab's antennaes have sharp wires, presenting a puncture wound hazard to children.

- Bi-fold Doors - Schweiss Distributing Co., of Fairfax, Minn., is recalling to repair approximately 500 bottom-operated, bi-fold doors, manufactured by a predecessor company. The doors lack a safety shield which could allow door operators and bystanders to become entrapped in moving door parts, such as the drive drums and cables, causing serious injuries such as amputations and fractures.
