WASHINGTON (AP) - More than 1.2 million Chuck E. Cheese light-up
rings and toy eyeglasses have been recalled today over concerns
that children might swallow the battery inside the items.
The toys were made in China and imported by Irving, Texas-based
CEC Entertainment Inc.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the plastic on the
toys can break, possibly exposing the button-type batteries.
Consumers should take the toys from children and return them for
a refund of cash or prizes.
The commission says two children were able to remove the battery
from the light-up rings. One child swallowed it; the other child
put the battery up his nose.
The 1.1 million light-up rings were part of a promotional
offering between April 2009 and June of this year or were offered
during parent-teacher association conventions. They came in blue,
green, purple, yellow and pink.
The 120,000 toy glasses, shaped like stars, were part of
birthday packages.
