Hungry Figures and Magnets Recalled by Weight Watchers

Aug 21, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP Weight Watchers International has recalled Hungry Figures and Hungry Magnets because they pose a puncture hazard.  According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, the recall involves about 420,000 Hungry Figures and Hungry Magnets in the U.S., as well as another 25,000 in Canada.

The Hungry Figures and Hungry Magnets have orange plush exteriors. The Hungry Figure is about 6 inches long and the Hungry Magnet is about 4 inches long.  They were sold exclusively by Weight Watchers between April 2009 and July 2009 for between $4 and $7.

According to the recall notice, sewing needles have been found in the stuffing of the Hungry Figures, posing a puncture hazard to consumers. Weight Watchers has received two reports from company employees of a sewing needle being found in two Hungry Figures. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Hungry Figures and Hungry Magnets and return them to Weight Watchers to receive a full refund or a credit towards the purchase of another product.  For additional information, contact Weight Watchers toll-free at (866) 288-3891 between 8:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.weightwatchers.com.
