McDonald's Corporation Issues Consumer Advisory on PLAY-DOH McNugget® Mini-tool Toy
OAK BROOK, Ill.
Nov 21, 2003
McDonald's Corporation today alerted retailers and consumers who purchased Hasbro Inc.'s PLAY-DOH McNugget Mini-tool to remove it from their shelves. Consumers should stop using the toy and call McDonald's Customer Satisfaction Department at 1-800-244-6227 for instructions on returning the toy in return for a McDonald's Gift Certificate.
The product meets all federal, voluntary ASTM and Hasbro safety standards, but does not meet McDonald's specifications.
Due to lack of approvals between Hasbro and McDonald's, Hasbro, Inc. has asked retailers to remove the PLAY-DOH McNugget® Mini-tool from store shelves. No other PLAY-DOH products are affected.
Only a small amount of this product has been sold. Neither Hasbro nor McDonald's has received any reports from consumers of any issues or incidents related to the toy.Photo: NewsCom: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20031121/CGF057
