Why is This Forky Plush Being Recalled?

This week, Disney recalled 80,000 Forky plush dolls. Unfortunately, it seems that the toy’s “googly” plastic eyes can come off. In a small child’s hands, these eyes can then pose a chocking hazard.

Though there were not any reported injuries, Disney is voluntarily recalling Sporky, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The 11-inch $20 toy can be returned to any Disney Store. Once returned, the company will provide a full refund.
