Thousands of Baby Cookie Monster Plush Toys are being pulled from the marketplace due to a potential choking threat.
The small felt fabric cookie attached to the plush toy’s hand can be removed easily and ingested by young children, posing a choking hazard.
No injuries or incidents have been reported.
This recall involves the Baby Cookie Monster plush toy packaged with certain Sesame Beginnings Make Music Together DVDs. The blue plush toy has a small, felt fabric cookie attached to its hand. The plush toy and DVD are packaged in a yellow and green box with the words “Sesame Beginnings” and “Make Music Together” printed on the front. The product is labeled for children ages 6 months and up.
The toys were sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from March 2006 to July 2006 for about $15.
Consumers should immediately remove the felt cookie and its connecting thread from the plush toy. A pair of scissors will do the job. Once detached, the felt cookie and thread should be disposed of immediately.
