Think again before using that battery-operated submarine toy tonight for bathtime. Munchkin is recalling their bathtub subs – they are yellow, with a smiling face, turquoise windows, an orange propeller and an orange periscope that turns the toy on and off. The intake valve has a water pump that sucks in water to propel the submarine.
Unfortunately that valve can suck up loose skin, causing lacerations. The incidents that have been reported have all been to boys' genital areas – OUCH!
I hope this is not your child's favorite bath toy – but please stop using it anyway.
