Slap watches are being recalled by K & M International due to coin cell battery ingestion and choking hazards
The coin cell battery inside the slap watches can fall out, posing battery ingestion and choking hazards to young children. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves a variety of Wild Republic slap watches with coin cell batteries that are attached to the silicone bracelet. There are 42 models that come in various colors.
The face on the watch comes with animal design or historical figures, such as a wolf, spider, elephant, dolphin, frog, panda, mermaid, and/or King Tut.
On the back of the watch, it states “Made in China” and has the initials K & M on it. As stated on the label, the slap watch is intended for children over the age of three.
The slap watches were sold at Kole Imports, Roer’s Zoofari, Seaquest Interactive Aquarium and other zoos, museums, and aquariums, and online at Wild Republic.com, Amazon.com, and Peluches Cory.com from March 2018 through April 2021. The cost was about $8.
