WASHINGTON, DC - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Kiddie Products, Inc., Avon, Mass., announced a voluntary recall of its Model No. 2096 "Squeaky Ducky." The company received 27 complaints that the top layer of the toy's vinyl cover separated from the soft foam squeaker toy. In three cases consumers reported that children had mouthed the cover.
