Hug N’ Tug toy recalled for choking hazard

Posted by Sarah Showard | Jan 16, 2013 | 0 Comments


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of Sassy® Hug N' Tug Puppy and Monkey and Carter's® Hug N' Tug Monkey toys because beads could become loose and choke a child. The CPSC has received 12 complaints that beads at the center of the toys became loose, though no injuries were reported.

The recall affected about 45,300 of the toys, which were made in China and sold at major retailers like Toys R Us and Target as well as online sites between July and October 2012. The Sassy toys sold for about $8 and the Carter's toys for about $14.

Consumers should immediately take the toys from children and contact Sassy for instructions on how to return the product for a free replacement toy by calling (800) 323-6336 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visiting the firm's website at and go to the Product Recall Information link.
