500,000 bunny toys recalled for choking risk

Toymaker Fisher-Price says the pompom nose on its 'Laugh and Learn Bunny' can detach, causing choking risk for young kids.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Toymaker Fisher-Price said Thursday it is recalling 500,000 "Laugh and Learn" Bunny toys after finding that the pompom nose on the product can detach and pose a serious choking risk for small children.

Fisher-Price, a division of No. 1 toymaker Mattel (Charts), said the recall involves the Laugh and Learn Learning Bunny that measures about 10-inches tall.

Fisher-Price warns that the pompom nose on the toy bunny can detach and pose a choking risk for small children.

The yellow bunny with one green and one orange ear has musical and counting sound effects. The words, "Laugh and Learn" are printed on the bunny's shirt.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the product numbers involved in the recall are: K0468, K2960, K2961, K2962, K2963, K2964, K2965, K3440, K6898, K7884, L0327, and K5862.

Only bunnies with three dimensional pompom noses are included in this recall. Bunnies with flat or embroidered noses are not subject to this recall.

The toy bunnies, manufactured in China, were sold at discount department stores and toy stores nationwide from May 2006 through December 2006, priced at about $15.

The CPSC said consumers should immediately take these recalled toys away from children and contact Fisher-Price to return the bunny and receive a voucher for a replacement toy.
