Residents in Mississauga, Brampton, and surrounding areas are being alerted by Health Canada to check to see if they have the following products which can pose all kinds of hazards including choking and fall injuries to children.
Toyland’s Baby Doll 5″
The recall involves the toy Baby Doll 5”.
These soft vinyl dolls are 5 inches (12.7cm) in height. There are six versions of the doll each with different hair styles and clothing.
All versions of the doll have the Item Number: F2DF 311 and UPC 061366193119 which can be found on the product packaging.
According to Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program, it has been determined that the recalled toy does not meet the requirements of the Phthalates Regulations.
The product contains phthalates (DEHP) above the allowable limits.
“Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods,” wrote Health Canada.
Risks: Prolonged use poses developmental issues in children.
What you should do: Immediately take the recalled toy away from children and dispose of the product or return to the store of purchase for a full refund.
