Tupperware Corporation Recalls Maraca Due To Choking Hazard

    TORONTO, April 16 /CNW/ - Tupperware Corporation of Orlando, Florida has
announced a voluntary recall in Canada for the Shape-O Maraca toy. Although

long yellow plastic handle. The globe has cut-outs in the shape of stars,
squares and other geometric figures, and various yellow plastic geometric
shapes are located inside the globe.
    The recalled toys were sold through the Tupperware Holiday 2007 and
Tupperware Spring 2008 catalogues. The recalled toys were sold from September,
2007 to April, 2008. Approximately 9,500 units of the recalled toys were sold
in Canada.
