Hallmark Recalls Harry Potter 'Magic Potion' Key Chain Because of Possible LeakApr 18, 2002 | AP
Hallmark Cards Inc. is recalling about 7,000 Harry Potter "Magic Potion Bottle" key chains because they could leak a substance that may be fatal if swallowed.
Kansas City, Missouri-based Hallmark has not received reports of any incidents, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (news - web sites) said Thursday.
The product includes a "potion bottle" filled with purple-colored mineral oil and red-colored water. It contains petroleum distillate, a fuel-burning substance that can cause breathing problems and become fatal if breathed into the lungs, a safety commission spokeswoman said.
Hallmark is recalling the 3-inch (8-centimeter) key chain voluntarily. The product is made of styrene and has a green base, a gold top and the letters "HP" printed on the bottle.
