Fun World Recalls Kids’ Dr. Littles & Little Pet Vet Costumes With Toy Stethoscopes Due To Choking Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and FunWorld issued a recall of about 1,800 Little Pet Vet and Dr. Littles costumes sold with toy stethoscope accessories, due to the possibility of kids pulling off the plastic ear pieces, thus posing a choking hazard to young children.

This recall is limited to the stethoscope accessory from Fun World’s toddler-sized Pet Vet and Dr. Littles costumes. The costumes include a white lab coat, a cap, scrub pants, a scrub shirt and a stethoscope. The cap and scrubs are pink, turquoise or blue. A tracking label bearing the code 10060GFI01 and a production date of either Jan-Mar 2010 or Apr-Jun 2010 is sewn into the neck of the scrub shirt or the lab coat. So far no injuries have been reported.

The costumes were sold from August 2010 to October 2010 for about $15, in novelty stores, costume and party supply stores nationwide.

Consumers should immediately take the stethoscope away from children and contact Fun World for instructions on returning the stethoscope for a full refund.
