Disney has been forced to withdraw from the US and Canadian market the figures of one of the most particular characters of the last installment of the franchise Toy Story.
It's a complete line of stuffed Forky, one of the most particular characters of Toy Story 4, whose version in stores had a defect in the eyes that made them easily bounced and turned out to be an element of danger of suffocation for the small ones that could put them in their mouths. As reported The Hollywood Reporter, the Commission for the Safety of Consumer Products of the United States has demanded that Disney remove the product, thus affecting a print run of 80,650 dolls.
After this, the large multinational has issued a statement that plays the role of the character entitled: "I'm garbage!", Which explains that they are "voluntarily withdrawing the 11-inch Forky due to a factory defect" and that it will return the amount of the toy from which more than 80,000 units were sold in US Disney stores.
According to El País, the Forky stuffed animal has not been put on sale in the Spanish or European Disney Store, but they add that if any user had bought the doll outside the continent, he can contact the company to make sure that his purchase is not between the affected units.
Forky is one of the most important dolls of the last installment of the saga, and his birth is far from resemble that of an ordinary toy. Bonnie, the owner of the troop captained by Woody and Buzz Lightyear, made the toy with a plastic fork and other items found in her kindergarten class. And when the character became aware of himself, he thought that it was not a toy, but trash, and that his place was among the waste. Something that has motivated multiple existentialist readings of the movie.
