Consumer Recalls: Toy Keys + Video File Sharing Device

There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:

Toy Keys

Battat Inc., of Plattsburgh, N.Y. issued a voluntary recall of Toy Keys with Remote because the metal toy keys and the plastic key ring can break, posing a choking hazard. This recall includes all B. FunKeys with factory code H58000-01 or H26300-01, and Parents Magazine Electronic Keys with factory code H26300-01. The factory code is located on the back of the remote. The remote of the B. Fun Keys is olive green or red and the top of the keys are multi-colored. The remote of the Parents Magazine Electronic Keys comes in different colors and the top of the keys is a solid color. Both remotes have sound buttons, and the metal keys hang from a plastic ring. The affected toy keys were sold at retailers nationwide and online sellers from April 2010 to May 2011 for B. FunKeys, and from January 2006 to December 2009 for Parents Magazine keys for about $9.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy keys away from children and contact Battat to receive replacement keys. For additional information, contact Battat toll-free at (866) 665-5524 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.

Other Recall

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

WOW, thanks for posting! My 2 yr old got these for Christmas. He doesn't play with them often, but figure I should return them (if possible, haven't called yet as they are not open now) so they don't end up in the "save in case of future children" toybox. :)

Thanks for the heads up. We've got one of these hanging around, too.

I called the company this morning. They were very nice and just took my name and address. I don't even have to send back the original keys.
Thanks so much for posting!
