Light Up Rubber Duck

Product description

This recall involves a light-up rubber duck toy.  The product comes in four different colours-orange, yellow, pink and green with dark orange for the beak.   There is a squeaker reed embedded in the underside of the duck.  The item #10967 and UPC #809519109675 can be found on the label which is attached to the bottom of the duck.

The rubber ducks do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for toys.  The squeaker inside the ducks can be easily removed; these small parts pose a choking hazard to young children.
