Buzz'r International, of Sandy, Utah, is voluntarily recalling about 8,800 Baby
Buzz'r toys. The red, green and blue button covers on the toy can come off,
posing a choking hazard to young children.
Baby Buzz'r has received five reports of button covers coming off. No injuries have been reported. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries. Baby Buzz'r toys currently being sold are not included in this recall.
Buzz'r is a round plastic baby toy with a face on the front, a red and blue
"teethable ear" on each side, and a yellow circular mirror on the
back. The Baby Buzz'r toy has three colored buttons (red, green, blue) on the
top of the product. When the buttons are depressed the toy vibrates, sounds
music, or the eyes light up on the toy.
Juvenile specialty stores nationwide, catalogues and internet sites sold the Baby Buzz'r toys from June 2001 through September 2001 for about $13. Consumers can identify the recalled toys by squeezing the button covers on the top of the toy with pliers. Button covers on toys that are part of the recall can be squeezed out of shape, and button covers on toys not included in the recall cannot be squeezed out of shape with pliers.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled Baby Buzz'r toys away from young children and contact Baby Buzz'r International to participate in the recall. Consumers can contact Baby Buzz'r International toll-free at (866) 222-9289 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday.
