Floating Duck Toy Set

Product description

This recall involves a floating duck toy set sold in a set of three.  One large duck and two smaller ducks are included in a netted bag.  The ducks are yellow with orange beaks, and there is a squeaker reed embedded in the underside of the duck.  The tag attached to the toys is labelled "3 pcs Set canards flottant" with item number 05338 and universal product code (UPC) 062823053380.

Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the floating 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.

As of November 30, 2016, CTG Brands Inc. has received no reports of incidents or injuries.

For some tips to help consumers choose safe toys and to help them keep children safe when they play with toys, see the General Toy Safety Tips.

Number sold

Approximately 5,000 units of the recalled floating ducks were sold in Canada at various stores.

Time period sold

The recalled toys were sold from June 2015 to December 2016.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
