Bathtub Toys Recalled Due to Risk of Injury

. By
Washington, DCMunchkin Inc, of North Hills, CA is recalling about 34,000 Bathtub Subs because the intake valve on the bottom of the submarine toy can suck up loose skin, posing laceration hazard to children.

To date, the CPSC and the company are aware of 19 incidents of lacerations to boys' genital area. One of the incidents required medical attention.

This recall involves battery-operated bathtub submarine toys. The toy is yellow, has a smiling face, turquoise windows, an orange propeller and an orange periscope that turns the toy on and off. The intake valve has a water pump that sucks in water to propel the submarine. The toy is intended for use by children during bath time.

The toys were sold at mass merchandise retail stores nationwide and children's stores nationwide from November 2009 through September 2010 for about $7.
