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.

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.
