Baby Shark started as an annoyingly catchy song, but then it exploded into an entire toy empire. If that wasn’t bad enough, it now appears that the Baby Shark toys could physically harm your kids! They’re like the lawn darts of the sea!
Thanks to the Orlando Sentinel, we learned that the CPSC had issued a recall that affected over 7 million Zuru Baby Shark toys. Often, recalls happen due to the potential for minor harm, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission says that the rigid plastic toy shark fins could cause “impalement, lacerations, and punctures.”
Zuru makes several variations of the Baby Shark toys in question. Some have plastic fins, while others are made of silicone. The silicone variant is not part of the recall.
If you’re concerned that your child’s toys are affected, you can tell by referencing the model number and dates stamped on the Baby Shark toys. For the larger toys, check out the following info:
“The recalled full-size bath toys have tracking label information on the bottom, including raised lettering that states model number “#25282” and a date code beginning with the letters “DG” followed by “YYYY/MM/DD” in the date range DG20190501 through DG20220619. Only full-size Baby Shark toys with a hard plastic top fin are included in this recall.”
The smaller sharks can also be identified via a similar method:
“The recalled mini-size bath toys have tracking label information on the bottom, including raised lettering that states model numbers “#7163,” “#7175,” “#7166,” or “#25291” and a date code beginning with the letters “DG” followed by “YYYY/MM/DD” in the date range DG2020615 through DG2023525.”
Zuru offers additional info for customers seeking refunds of the Robo Alive Junior Baby Shark Sing & Swim Bath Toys and Robo Alive Junior Mini Baby Shark Swimming Bath Toys. By going to Recallrtr, customers may submit a photo of the toys in question, which can be differentiated by the toys having plastic or silicone fins.
There’s also an option to reach via a toll-free number: 833-820-0839. The refunds will be limited to $14 for the full-size toys and $6 for the smaller ones.[Source: Orlando Sentinel] [Source: United States Consumer Product Safety Commission] [Source: Baby Crying PNG Background Image]
