Product name Stuffed Animal Mobiles
Description Models of the colorful, soft, stuffed animal mobiles include toucans, giraffes, pelicans, elephants, ducks, and penguins. The recalled mobiles may be identified by a cloth label sewn into the stuffed toy. It bears the words “CALDERON CO, INC., CONTENTS: ALL NEW MATERIAL, PLUSH AND FILLING (FILLING: POLYESTER FIBER & PLASTIC PELLERS) NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3 YEARS OF AGE) MADE IN TAIWAN.” A nylon cord about 26 inches long attaches to one wing, arm, or ear, passes through a white ring connecting two springs, and then attaches to the other wing, arm, or ear. This allows the wings, arms, or ears to flap as the animal bounces up and down. It also makes a squeaking noise as it bounces or is handled. 
Problem When these mobiles are hung within the reach of an infant, a 26-inch nylon cord poses the potential for entanglement and strangulation.
