Triangular piece of toy fails to comply with federal safety standard.
Juratoys US Corporation, of Millersburg, Pennsylvania, has recalled around 980 Sophie la Giraffe Bead Maze toys because the wooden triangle shape piece fails to meet the mandatory federal standard for small parts, posing a choking hazard to young children (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 20-066, February 6, 2020).
Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Product description. This recall includes a round wood-based bead maze toy in the shape of the Eiffel Tower with a Sophie giraffe figure and three wooden shapes (orange triangle, red heart, and green star) that sort into the wood base. The gray Eiffel Tower stands 8 inches tall on a green circular base measuring 6 3/4 inches in diameter. This recall involves the following batch numbers: 9321/J09504/022019; 9474/J09504/042019; and 9549/J09504/052019. The batch number is found on the bottom of the toy base, above the barcode.
These toys, which were manufactured in China, were sold at specialty toy and gift stores nationwide from February 2019 to November 2019 for about $25.
Remedy. Consumers should stop using the recalled Sophie la Giraffe Bead Maze toy immediately and check the bottom of the toy for the recalled batch numbers. If the toy matches the recalled batch numbers, consumers should destroy the triangle piece and contact Juratoys to receive a free replacement triangle piece.
