This comes after reports of 12 children who , as a result of the toy, went through “impalement, injuries, lacerations and puncture wounds” after sitting on the product, and most injuries were sustained to the “genital, anorectal and facial areas”. Nine of the twelve children required medial attention. A news release said:
“When using the recalled bath toys, particularly in a bathtub or wading pool, a child can slip and fall or sit onto the hard plastic top fin of the shark.”
While the reports were concerning the full size version of the toy, the mini version was recalled as a precaution even though no reports of injuries that were caused because of it. The CPSC told customers who had bought the toys to stop using them and get a refund.
