The toys are sold at Babies R Us, Target, and other stores nationwide and online at munchkin.com from September 2015 through January 2018 for between $5 and $7.

Consumers should immediately take the bath toy away from young children and contact Munchkin for a free replacement bath toy of comparable value.

The one-piece multi-colored Centipede shaped toy allows water to be scooped from the top, and flows through the chambers of the bottom. The bath toy is 100% plastic and is for children six months and up.
