In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sassy Inc. is recalling more than 45,000 Hug N Tug toys sold at retailers nationwide because they pose a choking risk to children. If your child was injured by one of the toys listed here or another defective product, the Mobile, Alabama, product liability attorneys at Long & Long may be able to help you. We have recovered millions of dollars in successful verdicts and settlements for innocent people harmed by faulty consumer goods. The Sassy toy recall affects the Hug N Tug Puppy and Hug N Tug Monkey as well as the Carter’s-branded Hug N Tug Monkey. Photos of the items can be seen on the CPSC Sassy toy recall page. The beads in the clear, plastic spheres at the centers of the toys can come free and pose a choking hazard to children. Although no injuries have yet been reported, the CPSC has received numerous reports of the beads being released. The recall includes the following model numbers:
- Model 80213 (Sassy Hug N Tug Puppy)
- Model 80214 (Sassy Hug N Tug Monkey)
- Model 61083 (Carter’s Hug N Tug Monkey)
These toys were sold at mass merchandisers including Toys R Us and Target, online retailers including amazon.com and carters.com and a number of independent stores across the country through October 2012. Consumers should remove these toys from children immediately and visit www.sassybaby.com for replacement information.
