He’s cute, fuzzy and wears different outfits according to his hobby or profession. But this little stuffed fella has a dark side.
Communicorp, a subsidiary of the Columbus-based AFLAC, has recalled 600,000 of promotional AFLAC ducks that were distributed from February 2009 through March 2021 as they contain levels of some phthalates that exceed the federal phthalate content standard. The fishing duck also has an elevated level of lead content.
Models include Accident Duck, Business Duck, Fishing Duck, Police Duck, PGA Duck, One Day Pay Duck, Heisman Duck and Lifeguard Duck. Owners of any ducks should dispose of them.
