A popular item sold at Disney Live shows and Disney on Ice shows has been recalled because it may be defective.
The product recall affects colorful toy wands sold by Feld Entertainment. Feld is a company that produces live touring family entertainment experiences, including Disney shows. (Feld is perhaps best known for owning Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which is about to be closed down for good.)
According to federal officials, Feld has recalled more than 30,000 light spinner toy wands because a section of the wand can easily fall off and expose kids to a long metal rod. The eight-inch metal piece poses a serious safety hazard to children.
The defective wands were sold to customers at Disney shows in October 2016 and November 2016. Each wand costs approximately $22, with customers often buying more than one at a time.
Although there have not been any injuries reported by users of the defective toys, the product manufacturer has issued a massive recall. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is assisting the company with the voluntary recall.
Anyone who purchased one of the recalled toy wands for their children is asked to immediately stop their kids from using the item. Feld Entertainment is offering a full refund on the purchase price, so the recalled products can be returned directly to the company.
Although Disney is not the manufacturer of the recalled toy wands, the wands are Disney-licensed products that feature a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse figure at the top.
This is the third time in just over a month that a product made for kids and sold at Disney-themed parks or events has been recalled.
In January, Disney recalled approximately 15,000 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse baby hoodie sweatshirts because they posed a choking hazard. The infant hoodies were sold at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California and at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
There was another Disney-related recall just one month later. In February, Disney recalled roughly 3,000 Mickey Mouse night lights because they leaked fluid and posed a fire hazard. There was at least one report of the nightlight causing an electrical fire.
