Over 7,000 of Gift Gallery’s Moody Face Stress Balls have been recalled. Due to poor quality construction, the rubber balls can break into pieces when squeezed and pose a choking hazard to small children.
No injuries have been reported yet, but customers are urged to stop using these stress balls and/or remove them from their child’s environment and return them to any Wegmans service desk for a full refund.
The Gift Gallery Moody Face Stress Balls are solid rubber balls that you can squeeze in your hand. These stress balls were sold in five colors: blue, green, orange, red and yellow and have black eyes and mouth as a smiley face printed on the front with pink, orange or yellow yarn hair on top. The balls measure about 2.5 inches in diameter. The stress balls were packaged in a clear bag with a white square label that has the “Gift Gallery” logo, model number 205617 and UPC code 0-67103-30053-6. THey were purchased from Wegmans in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia during September 2014 for about $1.
