SUMMARY

Voluntary safety recall of Plush Uterus due to potential choking hazard for children. Recall participants will receive a 15%-off online coupon code. Consumers may either return for refund/exchange, or opt-out via email if the uterus is not accessible to children. Please notify gift recipients.

NOTICE

In an effort to ensure our plush products exceed federal and international safety standards, we learned the 2008 Plush Uterus has failed a pull test. The ovaries may detach when pulled, becoming a potential small part choking hazard for young children. No one has been harmed.

Although our website and sewn-on label state that the uterus is not for children aged 0-3, we have instituted a voluntary safety recall for the uterus plush. We have filed a safety recall notice with the U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission (CPSC). If the plush uterus is being used by a young child, please remove it immediately. If you gave the uterus as a gift, please forward this email to the recipient(s).

All other I Heart Guts plush products have been certified as safe for all ages under US and European safety standards.

For the full recall notice, please go to “I Heart Guts”

  1. Why would you get this thing? What is wrong with square pillows that match the sofa with a couple of complementary color ones thrown in? Am I hopelessly — dare I say this? — square?

  2. that reminds me of the hand knitted uterus we gave our DON for a going away present…..

  3. Recalled?? But…it looks so lovable!

    I am a bit distraught, however, that the toy’s creators neglected to give it any eyebrows

  4. I want one.

  5. You’ve got to be of a suitable age, woo … over 15 years may be the requirement …
