Chuck E. Cheese’s Recalls Light-Up Rings and Star Glasses

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Chuck E. Cheese’s has issued a recall of 1.1 million light-up rings given away as part of a promotion due to the small batteries inside. There were reports to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) of one child swallowing a small battery and another child shoving a battery up his nose although no injuries were reported. The rings were given to many parent-teachers associations. The company is also recalling 120,000 pairs of Star Glasses, which also contain small batteries. The glasses were given away during birthday parties.

The rings were made in China, came in many different colors, and are 1 1/8 inches wide with a black elastic band. They were given out between April 2009 and June 2010.

The glasses are 5 1/2 inches wide, 2 1/2 inches tall and say “Chuck E. Cheese’s” on the side. They were given out between April 2010 and August 2010.

If you have either of these items, you should take them away from your child immediately. The rings may be returned to Chuck E. Cheese’s for a refund of $1, four game tokens, or a soccer promotional cup with four tokens. The glasses may be returned to Chuck E. Cheese’s for a refund of $4.99 or a “Flashing Hands” prize.
