PHOENIX — Plush toys featuring one of Arizona’s most famous feline residents have been recalled.
The Grumpy Cat toys, all produced by Ganz, were recalled Tuesday after it was discovered the animal’s plush eyes can detach and pose a choking risk to young children.
The recall affects about 8,200 toys.
This recall involves three styles of plush Grumpy Cat stuffed animal toys by Ganz. They include 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.
No one has been injured because of the defective eyes.
Consumers can contact Ganz at (800) 724-5902 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST Monday through Friday or at Ganz.com to either receive a full refund or a free replacement.
