Spinning Water TeethersJun 23, 2005 | www.consumeraffairs.com Prestige Toy Corp. is recalling about 1,500 spinning water teethers. The plastic spinner in the center of the teether can break, causing small beads to fall out. This poses a choking hazard to young children.
Prestige Toy Corp. received one report from a consumer that the spinning component of one of these teethers broke apart, releasing two small beads. No injuries were reported.
The water-filled teether is bright green or blue with a green and blue plastic butterfly or turtle in the center, which spins around. The spinner contains small beads which produce a rattling sound. They have Style #47447 (butterfly) and #47448 (turtle) written on the packaging.
The teethers were sold at Carter’s Stores nationwide from March 2005 through April 2005 for about $5.
Consumers should take these teethers away from young children and return the item to Prestige Toy Corp. for a full refund.
