DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – A certain frowning feline wouldn’t be happy about this.

Toy manufacturer Ganz has recalled its Grumpy Cat stuffed animals because the eyes can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

This recall involves three styles: an 8-inch Grumpy Cat in a laying position, a 5-inch sitting Grumpy Cat, and a 4-inch Grumpy Cat key clip.

The toys are multi-colored in white with dark brown, light brown and gray fur material. Grumpy Cat toys have blue crystal eyes with the eye lids half closed, a down-turned mouth and white whiskers. This toy is labeled for ages 3 and older. The Grumpy Cat key chain has a black plastic key clip at the top of the cat’s head. The recalled toys have batch numbers 86754 or 224861, and model numbers HGC12974, HGC12982 or HGC12983 printed on the sewn-in label located near the tail of the cat.

The toys are made in China and sold at gift, drug and toy stores including hospitals, museums and gift shops nationwide from December 2013 through January 2014 for about $8 to $10.

No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the recalled toys away from children and contact Ganz for a free replacement Grumpy Cat product of equivalent value, or a full refund.

Customers with questions can contact Ganz at 800-724-5902 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday. For more information, visit this link.
