The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with J.C. Penney of Texas yesterday announced a voluntary recall of about 49,000 Disney™ Deluxe Winnie-the-Pooh 23-Piece Play Sets.

The recalled play set consists of 23 pieces including: either a white or black baby doll and assorted Winnie-the-Pooh themed items such as a diaper bag, blanket, playpen, highchair, swing, stroller, and carrying bags. They were sold at the J.C. Penney catalog, Web site, and outlet stores nationwide from August 2005 through August 2007 for about $40 and manufactured in China.
