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.

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.
