Heath Canada has announced a recall of 516,125 Skip Ball toys sold in Dollarama stores across Canada.
This recall involves the Skip Ball toy made of a pink ankle loop and a multicolored ball, attached together by a plastic cord. The product number 14-1401338 can be found on the upper front part of the packaging and the UPC 667888025213, on the back.
The recalled products were sold from January 2012 to July 27th, 2018.
The Skip Ball toy may contain levels of phthalates that exceed the allowable limit. Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods.
