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.
