The Orvis Company Recalls Stuffed Toys Due to Choking Hazard

Comments Off

The CPSC and The Orvis Company are recalling about 220 Stuffed Plush Horses and 1,300 Fairy Dolls because the button eyes on the horse and the pompom nose on the fairy doll can easily detach which poses a choking hazard to children.

The Orvis Company has not received any reports of injury so far. The toys that were sold with sleeping bags were available on the company’s website and through mail-order catalogues. The product was available from September 2006 through December 2006.

The stuffed horses, which can be used as a pillow, is brown and is sold with the Horse Animal Sleeping Bag. The legs of the horse pillow are outstretched and has a black mane and tail. The stuffed horse can also attach to the sleeping bag from a hook that is on the horse’s stomach. Horses with eyes that are embroidered on the fabric are not included in the recall.

The Fairy Doll toy was sold with the Unicorn Animal Sleeping Bag. The doll has a pompom nose, and a pink satin dress that has glitter netting for the collar, the sleeves, and an apron. The doll can also be attached to the sleeping bag by a hook on the fairy’s wings. The sleeping bag comes with two other toys, but they are not included in the recall.
