A plush toy has potential safety hazards, involving about 3,000 recalled products
On March 18, 2021, the US Consumer Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada announced a recall of Chinese plush toys. The recalled product is a plush toy in the shape of a shepherd. The product is about 12 inches tall, wearing white clothes, a red vest, a green belt, sandals on the feet, orange hair stitched on the face, and a shepherd's stick in hand. The metal wire in the shepherd's rod may be exposed, posing a risk of cuts to consumers. The recalled products will be sold in the United States from November 2020 to January 2021, and sold in Canada from November 1, 2020 to January 12, 2021. The recalled products involve about 3,000 products in the United States and about 10 products in Canada. It's about $16. So far, there have been 12 reports of metal wire exposure in the United States, and no casualties have been reported. CPSC and Health Canada advise consumers to immediately discard the cane in the product and contact Shepherds Treasure to obtain a full refund in the form of a gift certificate.
