Chuck E. Cheese's is recalling more than 1 million toy rings and glasses based on fears that children could swallow the batteries inside.
The recall involves 1.1 million light-up rings and 120,000 star-shaped eye glasses, both of which have batteries that could be exposed if the plastic casing is broken. If swallowed, the batteries could damage the stomach, intestine, esophagus or nasal mucus membrane, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
While no incidents involving the glasses have been reported, one child swallowed a battery from a ring and another stuck one up his nose.
Parents should immediately take the recalled products away from their children and return them to Chuck E. Cheese's for a full refund. Parents returning the light-up rings can also score some free tokens in addition to their refund. For additional information, call the Chuck E. Cheese's corporate hotline at 1-888-778-7193 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time, or e-mail the company at email@example.com.
