WASHINGTON (February 24, 2017) – Moose Toys is recalling over 400,000 toy frogs that pose a significant danger to children, according to a local news source.
After 17 reports of malfunctions by the Little Live Pets toy frogs, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has released a statement saying that if the button batters are removed from the toy frogs, the battery’s cap can become a projectile, and the caustic chemicals can leak out. Out of the 17 reports received, 2 of them included emergency room visits for eye irritation from the chemicals.
The recall includes the Little Live pet Lil Frog and Lil Frog Lily Pad. The toys were sold at a variety of stores from August 2016 to February 2017, including Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us.
“Some products are manufactured in a way that makes them inherently unsafe in order to simply save money during the manufacturing process. Shortcuts cannot be made or lives may be put in danger. Consumer Safety should never be optional,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm.
