    587K Wind-Up, Musical Plush Toys Recalled Over Choking Risk
    Kids Preferred
    The Kids Preferred toys being recalled over a choking risk.

    More than half a million plush toys that wind up to play music have been recalled because the wind-up handle can detach from the toys — sold nationwide at Walmart, Target and other stories — posing a choking hazard.

    No injuries have been reported as of the Thursday recall, but six instances of the handle detaching have been reported to the toys' maker, Kids Preferred.

    The recall affects 587,000 units, which came in a variety of characters and colors sold between January 2016 and August 2017; they should be taken away from young children immediately. Kids Preferred is offering a free replacement.
