RECALL: Dunkin Donuts Recalls Glow Sticks Due to Choking & Stangulation Risks

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Dunkin' Donuts of Canton, Mass., announced a voluntary recall about 1 million Pink and Orange Glow Sticks (free giveaway with donuts). The recalled glow sticks are not properly labeled to warn consumers that the cap and lanyard can detach, posing a choking hazard. Additionally, the lanyard poses a strangulation hazard to young children. There were no reported incidents or injuries. The pink and orange glow sticks were given away free with purchases of donuts. They were part of a free giveaway with donus at Dunkin’ Donuts stores nationwide from September 2007 through October 2007 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled glow sticks away from young children and return them to any Dunkin’ Donuts for a free donut. For additional information, contact Dunkin’ Donuts at 800-859-5339 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit
