Wet Threat

Approximately 273,000 pool toys are being recalled because children can impale themselves on them.

The Jet Streamers™ Outdoor Antics! Pump-Action Water Blasters are straight squirt guns for the pool. The Jet Streamers measure 9-inches long with a bulbous water reservoir at one end and a rigid tapering handle containing a small water intake hole at the other end. The tapering handle is gray while the bulbous water reservoir varies in colors of white/green, blue/yellow and orange/silver. When they're partially filled with water, they stand upright on the bottom of swimming pools.

Tiny raised lettering on the Jet Streamers’ handles state, “©2002 Wild Planet Toys, San Francisco, CA, USA, Made in China.” The toys were sold as a 2-pack set, in packages with other pool toys, such as dive balls and magnet dive gloves, and with boys’ swim trunks. The product packaging is labeled “Jet Streamers,” “Wild Planet” and is for children ages five and older.

They were sold by Target, Kohl’s, internet retailers, discount department stores and toy stores nationwide from February 2003 through August 2006 for between $6 and $13 a set.

Customers should immediately stop using the Jet Streamers and contact Wild Planet for a replacement product. The replacement product has an angled handle that prevents the handle of the toy from standing upright.
