Toy Kitchen Is Recalled; Parts May Cause Choking

WASHINGTON -- Amloid Company of Saddle Brook, NJ, is voluntarily recalling some 75,000 "Cook N Clean Kitchen" toys because small plastic parts may come off the toy and could pose a choking hazard to young children.

Packaged in a yellow plastic, fold-up carrying case, "Cook N Clean Kitchen" is a toy kitchen for pre-school children. The toy kitchen includes a stove, sink, cupboard, pots, pans, utensils and placemats made of blue, red and yellow plastic. The temperature control knob on the stove and small red pegs on the back of the toy may come off and could present a choking hazard.

Imported from Mexico, the toys were sold nationwide since April 1987 for about $6 to $8.

Consumers should immediately take the toy away from young children and return it to the store where purchased for a refund of the full purchase price.

The U.S. Customs Service identified the potentially hazardous toy at the Port of Laredo, Texas during "Operation Toyland," a joint surveillance program with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
