Disney-themed children’s figurines recalled due to choking hazard
WASHINGTON - More than 16,000 small Disney figurines have been recalled because the arms and legs can detach, posing a small part choking hazard to children, U.S. consumer safety officials said.
The recall, announced on Feb 16, involves "My First" Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear, and Stitch Figurines. A notice posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said about 16,140 figurines were recalled, in addition to about 600 sold in Canada.
The soft vinyl figurines measure about 4.25 to 5.25 inches high, and some of the toys have a bead rattle, the CPSC said.
