A stuffed chipmunk toy is being recalled because parts inside the toy can break, posing a laceration hazard.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves Lamaze Munching Max chipmunk stuffed toys. The recalled toy has the item number L27578. “Tomy,” “Lamaze” and the item number are printed on a sewn-in fabric label near the tail of the toy. The stuffed toy is multi-colored with a white clip on the head of the chipmunk. When the clip is pulled, the chipmunk toy vibrates and simulates eating the cloth nut attached to its arm.

The CPSC said parts inside the toy can break creating a sharp point that can penetrate the surface of the toy, posing a laceration hazard. So far, TOMY International has received a report of a  minor laceration injury to a child’s hand.

The recalled product was sold at Babies R Us, Toy R Us and other retail stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from May 2016 through July 2017 for about $16. Anyone with the recalled toys should take them away from children and contact TOMY International to receive a free replacement toy and a TOMY online store coupon. 

People can contact TOMY International toll-free at 866-725- 4407 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to noon Friday or online at http://recall.tomy.com. Consumers can also visit www.tomy.com and click on Recalls for more information.
