Chuck E. Cheese Toy Recall: Star Glases & Light Up Rings
Chuck E. Cheese: 1.2 Million Promotional Toys Recalled
Pizza chain Chuck E. Cheese is recalling 1.2 million promotional toys due to faulty battery enclosures. The affected toys are Star Glasses and Light-Up Rings. According to the US CPSC and Health Canada, this is a voluntary recall.
The Light-Up Rings were distributed as promo material during PTA conferences in 2009 and 2010. The Star Glasses were handed out as part of birthday-party packages at Chuck E. Cheese restaurants.
The plastic around the battery enclosures in these toys is fragile enough to pose a danger to small children.
Consumers with light-up rings should immediately take the product away from children and return it to any Chuck E. Cheese location to receive their choice of either a refund of $1 or a soccer promo-cup. Both choices come with four Chuck E. Cheese’s tokens.
Consumers with the recalled star glasses should immediately take the products away from children and return them to any Chuck E. Cheese location for a choice of either a $4.99 refund or a flashing hands prize product.
Units: About 1,100,000 Light-up Rings and 120,000 Star Glasses
Importer: CEC Entertainment, Inc., of Irving, Texas
Hazard: If crushed or pulled apart, the plastic casing can break into small pieces and possibly expose the batteries, posing an ingestion hazard to children. If ingested, the batteries may be damaging to either the stomach, intestine, esophagus or nasal mucus membrane.
