Toy Drums Recalled by Eden LLC

PRODUCT: Toy Drums - Eden LLC, of New York, N.Y., voluntarily recalled about 5,800 toy drums. Department, specialty, gift and toy stores, including FAO Schwarz, sold the toys nationwide from May 2000 through February 2001 for about $12 when sold alone to $45 when sold as part of a set. The toy drum is shaped like a soft stuffed green crab with multi-colored stuffed feet and blue stuffed claws. The crab's center is a yellow plastic with green spots. The toy drums, sold under the name "Little Lessons Music Makers," have labels on the front and near the right leg that say "Eden."

PROBLEM: The mallet sold with the toy drum has spheres on each end that can pose a choking hazard if they become lodged in a young child's throat.

INCIDENTS/INJURIES: None reported.

WHAT TO DO: Consumers should take the drums away from children immediately and discard or destroy the product. Eden LLC is out of business and cannot be contacted.
