WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Toys "R" Us of Paramus, NJ announces the voluntary recall of the F.J. Strauss "Musical Toothbrush Trainer Set." The set contains a baby's toothbrush and gum massager, and a musical handle for the toothbrush and the massager.

F.J. Strauss, manufacturer of the product, is no longer in business. Toys "R" Us, Inc. has agreed to participate in this recall and inform customers of the potential hazard.

The tip of the gum massager may come off. Because the toothbrush set is recommended for children six months and up, the massager, if detached, presents a choking hazard.

Consumers who own an F.J. Strauss Musical Toothbrush Trainer Set should immediately discontinue use and discard the gum massager. Consumers who purchased the F.J. Strauss Musical Toothbrush Trainer Sets from Toys "R" Us are asked to return them to the store with proof of purchase for a full refund. For more information, consumers may call 1- 800-548-0364.

Approximately 17,000 toothbrush trainers were sold nationwide by Toys "R" Us from February 1, 1991, to January 31, 1992 for $2.99 each.

Toys "R" Us has removed all units from their shelves as a precaution and has cooperated with the Commission by providing product samples and information concerning the product.

CPSC was informed of this potential hazard by Toys "R" Us after the firm received a complaint from a customer whose child had bitten off the gum massager. The child was not injured in the incident.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing this recall as part of its mission to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with consumer products. The Commission's mission is to reduce the estimated 28.5 million injuries and 21,600 deaths associated each year with the 15,000 different types of consumer products under CPSC's jurisdiction.
