Dollar Tree has recalled their children’s doctor playsets, containing a stethoscope with a variety of toy medical instruments, because of a potential choking hazard. The ear buds on the stethoscope and the tip of the syringe may detach, causing a choking hazard to young children.

Approximately 31,554 units of the recalled playsets were sold at Dollar Tree Canada locations between July 2011 to December 2015. Neither Health Canada nor Dollar Tree has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.

What should you do?

If you have this product in your home, you should immediately take the toy away from children and return it to a Dollar Tree location for a full refund.
