CPSC, Kids II Inc. Announce Recall of Pop Links Toys

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kids II Inc., of Alpharetta, Ga., is voluntarily recalling about 20,000 Pop Links toys. The tips on the links that snap together like a chain, can break off, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Kids II has received 11 reports of tips on the links breaking. No injuries have been reported.

Pop Links model 883 with a date code "ND1" molded on the tips of the links are involved in this recall. The toys come in a variety of bright colors with unique shapes and various textures. There are 12 links in a package. The links snap together, creating a chain of links. Mass merchandise and juvenile specialty stores nationwide sold the Pop Links between June 2001 through November 2001 for about $4.

Consumers should immediately take the Pop Links toys away from young children and return them to Kids II for a replacement toy. Consumers can contact Kids II toll-free at (877) 325-7056 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

Kids II Pop Links that do not have a date code "ND1" are not subject to this recall.
