Gemmy Recalls Disney Plush Easter Baskets

Gemmy Industries Corp., of Coppell, Texas, has voluntarily recalled Disney Princesses Easter Baskets sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from February 2007 through March 2007 for about $10.

The recalled baskets are pink and purple plush Easter baskets decorated with silver beads and ribbons. “Disney Princesses” is written on top of the basket. Pictures of the princesses are on the front of the basket. The basket measures about 10-inches high by 8-inches wide.

Consumers should take the Easter basket away from young children immediately and remove the beads and ribbons to prevent the choking hazard. Consumers also can return the item to the nearest Wal-Mart store for a full refund.
