I don't know
 
 
I was giving a bath to my 6 month old son washing his back while he's playing with his yellow duck in in front of him and suddenly his body movements started to change not realizing that he started choking not breathing.
He was able to put the yellow ducks head on his month and got stuck not knowing how to take it out .

Comment from Munchkin Inc. 11/1/2016
We are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate experience the consumer and child had with the Munchkin Safety Duck. Munchkin considers consumer safety paramount to our values. Our commitment to product design and manufacturing is critical for assuring all Munchkin products meet or exceed product safety standards. Please note that the Safety Duck was tested by an independent 3rd party laboratory to ensure compliance to all applicable standards and requirements and it met or exceeded these requirements. Because the Safety Duck was designed to be a bath toy for playing with in the bathtub, the Safety Duck was evaluated as a hand held toy for children under 18 months which includes rattle gauge testing, in addition to small parts testing.
However, to ensure there are not any anomalies within a product involved in a reported complaint, We always want to get the product back so we can forward it to our internal Quality and Engineering teams for further evaluation. Unfortunately, the consumer no longer had the product in their possession, so it is difficult to determine possible reasons or conditions leading to this occurrence. Therefore, we are unable to conclude whether product related factors or human factors played a role in the incidents noted by the consumer. We welcome the consumer contacting us to provide further information. Our Customer Satisfaction department operates from 7am to 5pm PST. You can reach them by calling toll-free at 1-800-344-2229.
