Animal Snap Bracelets imported by Toysmith of Sumner, Wash.; sold at Cost Plus World Market, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and other retailers from September 2011 to February 2012 have been recalled.
The bracelets come in assorted metallic fabrics with animal figures including a seahorse, frog, snake, starfish, crab, lizard, dolphin and fish.
The manufacturing date codes, Toysmith name and address are printed on a sewn-in label found on the inside of the bracelet. A round paper tag is attached to the product with the product name, Toysmith information, SKU number and bar code. The bracelets were manufactured in China.
WHY: The metal snap band can wear through the fabric covering, resulting in exposing sharp edges and posing a laceration hazard.
INCIDENTS: The firm has received eight reports of injuries including lacerations.
About 89,500 units are being recalled.
FOR MORE: Contact Toysmith at 800-356-0474 between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at http://www.toysmith.com .
