Product Name: ALEX Hoops for the Tub 

Description: This recall involves ALEX Hoops for the Tub bath toy. The bath toy includes 3 soft plastic balls with a squirting feature in assorted colours, along with a basketball net with 2 suction cups. Affected Products have the model number 694, UPC number 731346069405 and batch code ALEX 32516-P1O1694. Approximately 240 units of the affected products were sold in Canada at Mastermind Toys. The recalled product was sold from September 2017 to February 2018.

Hazard: Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these plastic toys do not meet the Phthalates Regulations and may pose a chemical hazard. Specifically the toys contain a phthalate, Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate (DEHP), that exceeds the allowable limit. Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods. As of February 5, 2018, the company has received no reports of incidents in Canada, and no reports of injuries.

What to do: Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and contact ALEX Toys LLC for disposal instructions and a full refund.
