Dunkin' Donuts recalls 1 million glow sticks
Company says the giveaway toys can pose a choking risk to small children.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Dunkin' Donuts on Wednesday announced a recall of 1 million pink and orange "glow stick" toys for choking and strangulation risks to small children.
The company said that the Chinese-made glow sticks were free giveaways with donuts at Dunkin' Donuts stores nationwide from Sept. through Oct. 2007.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said the glow sticks are not properly labeled to warn consumers that the cap and lanyard can detach, posing a choking hazard.
Additionally, the agency said the lanyard poses a strangulation hazard to young children.
Although no injuries have been reported, the CPSC advised that consumers should immediately take the recalled glow sticks away from children and return them to any Dunkin' Donuts for a free donut.
