Recall: LeapFrog Recalls Electronic Plush Toys

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with LeapFrog Enterprises Inc., of Emeryville, Calif., today announced a voluntary recall of about 3,700 My Pal Scout Electronic Plush Toy Dogs.

This recall involves My Pal Scout, a green and beige electronic plush dog with plastic decals on its paws. When those decals are pushed, the dog plays songs, speaks and barks. “Scout” is printed on the dog tag at the dog’s neck. The plush dog measures about 9 inches high by 9 inches wide. “LeapFrog Ent. Item No. 19142” is printed on the white tag attached to the dog and on the toy’s packaging. My Pal Scout dogs with embroidered paws are not included in this recall.

The decals on the paws of the plush toy can be removed and ingested by a child, posing a choking hazard.  LeapFrog has received two reports of children removing the decals from this toy, including one report of a child ingesting part of the decal.

These plush toys were sold at Toys “R” Us stores nationwide, and on the Web at www.toysrus.com, www.leapfrog.com and other retail Web sites from May 2009 through June 2009 for about $20.

Consumers should immediately take the toy away from young children and contact LeapFrog to receive a replacement My Pal Scout with embroidered paws rather than decals.

For additional information, contact LeapFrog at (800) 701-5327 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, and on Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.leapfrog.com/recall
