Ganz recalls stuffed animal toys

WASHINGTON, DC (CPSC/WUSA9)--Three styles of Plush Grumpy Cat stuffed animal toys by Ganz are voluntarily being recalled because they pose a choking hazard to young children. This is according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The CPSC says the eyes on the stuffed toys can detach.

The recall covers an 8-inch Grumpy Cat in laying position, a 5-inch long sitting Grumpy Cat and a 4-inch Grumpy Cat key clip. The toys are multi-colored in white with dark brown, light brown and gray fur material. Grumpy Cat toys have blue crystal eyes with the eye lids half closed, a down-turned mouth and white whiskers. This toy is labeled for ages 3 and older. The Grumpy Cat key chain has a black plastic key clip at the top of the cat's head. The recalled toys have batch numbers 86754 or 224861, and model numbers printed on the sewn-in label located near the tail of the cat.

The recalled toys model and batch numbers are:



Batch 1

Batch 2

Grumpy Cat 8" Laying




Grumpy Cat 5" Sitting




Grumpy Cat Key Clip




The recalled toys were sold at drug and toy stores, and gift shops, including in hospitals and museums. They sold for $8-$10 from December 2013 through January 2014.

The CPSC says, "Consumers should immediately take the recalled toys away from children and contact Ganz for a free replacement Grumpy Cat product of equivalent value or a full refund."
