172,000 Children's "Thunderbat" Noisemaker Plastic Bats Recalled
Processed Plastic Company, Montgomery, IL, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is voluntarily issuing a recall of its yellow tipped "Thunderbat" sound baseball bat, model numbers 39600, 39603, 39604, and 39606. The Company is asking that consumers check to make sure that the plastic end cap is stapled securely to the bat. If the end cap is not securely stapled, the end of the bat can separate from the bat and strike a bystander. This recall applies only to Thunderbats with yellow end caps.
