Hasbro, Inc. Recalls "Love A Bye Baby"

Washington, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Hasbro, Inc. is voluntarily recalling its "Love-A-Bye Baby" doll line because the CPSC has determined that the doll's arms, baby bottle and comb are small parts that could present a serious choking hazard to young children under three years of age.

The dolls are 3-1/2 inches tall and come in black or white with curly or straight hair, with and without hair ribbons. The sets include a Love-A-Bye Baby doll, a 1-1/2 inch baby bottle, and a two-inch comb and sold for between $2.00 and $5.00 each. Other Love-A-Bye doll accessories are sold separately but are not being recalled.

Approximately 3,749,000 were distributed nationwide from December 1987 to March 1989.

Consumers should take the doll, baby bottle, and comb away from young children immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. Consumers may also return them to Hasbro, Inc., 450 Division Street, Pawtucket, RI 02861 for a refund.

For further information about this recall, consumers may call 1-800-242-7276.

While neither the CPSC nor Hasbro, Inc. are aware of any injuries or complaints involving the Love-A-Bye Baby doll, this recall is being under taken to prevent that possibility.
