Recall Alert: Hobby Lobby Light-Up Spinners
Because of a choking risk with the batteries, the company has recalled two holiday-themed light-up spinners. Get the details here.
Hobby Lobby has recalled two holiday battery-powered, light-up spinner toys due to a choking and ingestion hazard. The Easter and 4th of July toys have a detachable battery cover; children could remove the cover and swallow the batteries inside, or even choke on the small parts.
If you might have one at home, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says you should take it away from kids immediately.
According to the CPSC recall report, the Easter-themed toys were sold in blue with a pink bunny on the dome and yellow with a yellow-and-orange chicken on the dome. The July 4th spinners are red with white stars painted on the blue dome. “Hobby Lobby” and item number 9130033 or 9130082 is printed on the spinner handle.
The company has received one report of a toddler who swallowed the battery, but luckily, the child wasn't seriously harmed.
Customers could have purchased the recalled toys between February 2017 and April 2017 at Hobby Lobby and Mardel stores. You can return the light-up spinners to a Hobby Lobby or Mardel store for a refund (with receipt) or store credit (without receipt).
If you're worried you might have a recalled toy, you can contact Hobby Lobby at 800-326-7931 or find more information on the company's recall website.
