Carle Place, NY– About 1,800 Little Pet Vet costumes and Dr. Littles costumes were voluntarily recalled for choking hazards by the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Fun World, Inc. a Division of Easter Unlimited. The CPSC announced the product recall on March 9, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the costumes are sold with a toy stethoscope accessory, in which the plastic ear pieces can be pulled off and can pose 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,” reported the CPSC press release.

Consumers are advised to contact Fun World for instructions on returning the stethoscope for a full refund.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Fun World at (800) 247-5314 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by email to [email protected]
