20,000 Fidget Spinners Recalled

20,000 Fidget Spinners Recalled

Even though fidget spinners remain popular, several different product models have been recalled in the last few years. Most recently the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) released a recall of 20,000 fidget spinner key chains. The commission launched the recall due because of a defect that creates choking hazards for consumers – especially children, who may be more likely to own the toy than adults.
The recalled item is a Pokemon-themed fidget spinner manufactured by Fashion Accessory Bazaar. The products were available for purchase online at Amazon.com as well as at popular retail stores such as Gamestop, Wonderland and Bonita Marie Int. between September and November 2017. They cost anywhere an average of $7 to $10.
Luckily, no consumer injuries have been reported yet. As with most children-oriented items, the CPSC is trying to alert consumers to the recall as quickly as possible by initiating a fast track recall. In this case, a fast track recall means that the manufacturer is complying with the CPSC and trying to take the appropriate steps to improve the safety of its product. The commission is recommending that any anyone who owns the recalled item call the manufacturer, Fashion Accessory Bazaar, and take the necessary steps to receive a full financial refund.
If you or your child owns one of these recalled fidget spinners, please discontinue use right away and contact the manufacturer. If any injuries were sustained, contact a representative at our firm directly.
