Disney Recalls the Forky 11” Plush Toy Due to Choking Hazard
“I’m trash!” Forky says as he tries to hurl himself into the garbage during Disney’s “Toy Story 4.” His repeated attempts are one of the funniest parts of the movie.
This in-real-life Forky news isn’t a joke, though.
Disney issued a voluntary recall of its plush Forky toy Monday. The Consumer Products Safety Commission reported the googly eyes can detach and present a choking hazard to children younger than 3.
About 80,000 of the plush toys were sold in the U.S. The 11-inch dolls are further identifiable by pose able arms and a rainbow icon on top of one of the toy’s foot.
Plush Forky was sold at Disney Stores, Disney Theme Parks, shopdisney.com and through the Disney store on Amazon Marketplace from April to June for about $20.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and return it, said the Consumer Products Safety Commission. Disney said customers can get a full refund by visiting any North America Disney Store or Disney Theme Parks store, calling 866-537-7649, or emailing personal.shoppers@shopDisney.com.
