Feels Real Baby Dolls recalled due to choking hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Lakeshore Learning Materials of Carson, California are recalling thousands of baby dolls throughout North America.

According to a press release by the CPSC, the Feels Real Baby Dolls can pose a choking hazard to young children. The CPSC says the fingers and toes can detach, posing that hazard.

Around 3,900 dolls in the United States and 400 in Canada are being recalled. At this time, no injuries or incidents with the dolls have been reported.

Feels Real Baby Dolls are 14-inch high plastic dolls with movable arms, legs, and head. The dolls are Hispanic, Caucasian, Asian and Black and are dressed in diapers with a colored hearts, stars and swirl print. Two labels are sewn inside the back of the diaper. "Lakeshore" is written on the larger label. The number "550200" is written on the smaller label.

Feels Real Baby Dolls were sold at Lakeshore Learning Materials catalogs and online at www.lakeshorelearning.com from May 2011 through January 2012 for about $20. The dolls were manufactured in China.

Consumers with a Feels Real Baby Doll should immediately take these dolls away from children and contact the company for a free replacement doll.
