Toysmith recalls 30,000 toy light-up frogs and ducks

CPSC

Toysmith is recalling about 30,000 toy light-up frogs and ducks because the metal conductor pin on the bottom of the toys can come out, posing a choking hazard. The toys light up when the sensors on the bottom of the product are touched or placed in water.  The frog comes in green and the ducks come in yellow, pink and clear.

They were sold at Cost Plus World Market between July 2012 and December 2012 for around $3. No injuries have been reported. For more information, go to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Website.
