Bath Toy Attacks Genitals, 19 Boys Injured

Bath toy submarine recalled.

An innocent looking bath toy – a happy little yellow submarine with a big smile – has apparently gone into attack mode.

The battery operated toy has turquoise windows, an orange propeller, and a periscope that turns the toy on and off. There’s an intake valve in the front, which takes in water using a small pump. The water is then expelled from the back to push it through the water.

Munchkin Incorporated, the makers of the toy, have released information indicating that 19 boys were injured when playing with the toy submarine. The suction from the intake valve is strong enough that the loose, sensitive, skin of the genitals can be sucked into the submarine and cut by the pump.

The toy should be removed from tubs immediately, taken away from children, and returned to the company.

Munchin can be reached Monday through Friday, 24 hours a day, at 1-877-242-3134, for details on returning the toy in exchange for a different toy. Consumers may also visit their site at: http://www.munchkin.com/customer_service/product_recall.php
