Snap Bracelets Recalled Due to Laceration Hazard

by Monty Yolles on February 12, 2013

The Toysmith company of Sumner, Washington recently recalled 89,500 Animal Snap Bracelets sold around the U.S.

The bracelets have been recalled due to a defect in the product’s design. The metal snap band has been known to wear through the fabric covering it, exposing sharp edges which can cause lacerations when using the bracelet.

This recall includes Animal Snap Bracelets in assorted fabrics with animal figures, including Seahorse, Frog, Snake, Starfish, Crab, Lizard, Dolphin, and Fish. Manufacturing date codes can be found on a sewn-in label on the inside of the bracelet. The bracelets were sold at Cost Plus World Market, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, and other retailers from September 2011 to February 2012.

More information about the recall can be found at the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website. Consumers who purchased this toy should return the product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.

If you or someone you know has been injured due to this, or any, defective product, you may be entitled to some monetary reparations. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine your best course of action.
