Defect Description: Toy Mobiles Recalled by Albert E. Price NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   August 21, 1980   Release # 80-030 Stuffed Toy Mobiles Recalled Because Of Strangulation Hazard WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 21, 1980) -- Approximately 2,300 stuffed mobile toys which may pose a strangulation hazard to infants are being recalled by their importer, Albert E. Price, Inc., of Bellmawr, New Jersey. The recall is being conducted voluntarily in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall applies to two types of stuffed animal mobiles which are intended to be suspended from ceilings or cribs by a metal spring and two white string cords. Although no deaths or injuries have been associated with these toys, a similar toy imported by another firm was involved last year in the strangulation of an 11-month-old baby girl when she became entangled in the elastic cords suspending it from her crib. Those toys have since been recalled. The Albert Price toys being recalled include a duck, model 9160, and an elephant, model 9161. Both toys are covered with plush fabric. The importer's name is printed on a tag attached to each animal., and the model numbers appear on the boxes in which the toys are sold. Parents immediately should cut off the cords and the spring. To receive a full refund, consumers should return the toy to place of purchase. To verify the model numbers, contact CPSC's toll-free Hotline at 800-638-2772.
