Toys R Us Issues Recall for Infant Wiggle Balls That Pose a Choking Hazard to Infants
The ball's rubber knobs and plastic back can detach
A choking hazard posed to infants has prompted Toys "R" Us to recall more than 30,000 Bruin infant wiggle ball toys. The ball's rubber knobs and plastic back can detach.
This recall involves Bruin Infant Wiggle Ball toys also called a giggle ball. The blue ball has textured bumps for gripping and has orange, green and yellow rubber knobs around the ball. The ball wiggles, vibrates, and plays three different musical tunes. It has an on/off switch and requires three AA batteries to operate.
The wiggle balls have model number 5F6342E and Toys "R" Us printed on the product.
The recalled Bruin infant wiggle ball toys were sold at Babies "R" Us and Toys "R" Us stores nationwide from June 2016 through January 2017 for about $13 each.
To date, Toys "R" Us has received six reports of rubber knobs breaking off, including four reports of pieces of the product found in children's mouths.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled wiggle balls, take them away from babies, and return them to any Babies "R" Us or Toys "R" Us store for a full refund.
