This recall is being issued by: Consumer Products Safety Commission
Recalled on: September 15, 2010
Description: Chuck E. Cheese recalls over 1 million light-up rings and 100,000+ star glasses. If broken, the batteries can become exposed and if ingested, batteries can cause damage to the stomach, intestine, esophagus and/or nasal mucus membrane.
A recent study shows that small disc batteries can cause severe internal injury when exposed to saliva. Dr. Toby Litovitz,
director of the National Capital Poison Center in Washington D.C., notes "because of their small size, these batteries tend to get stuck in a child's esophagus, where their higher voltage compared with traditional batteries sets up a more rapid electrolysis reaction, which basically causes a severe chemical burn."
