Worldwise Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of about 223,000 SlyDog Retractable Dog Leashes after receiving five reports of injuries, including facial cuts, a broken tooth, displaced eye lens, and a bruised collar bone.
Those who have a SlyDog retractable leash with a metal clasp should stop using the product immediately. The company said the metal clasp connecting the leash to a dog’s collar can bend or break while in use, causing the leash to recoil unexpectedly.
The leash has a handle composed of a blue plastic case with a black plastic grip. The leash is made of a black woven strap and measures approximately one-half inch wide. The SlyDog retractable leashes with a plastic clasp are not included in this recall.
The leases were sold through Dollar General stores nationwide from September 2007 through August 2008 for about $5.
Consumers should return the leash to Worldwise Inc. for a full refund, including shipping costs. For more information, contact Worldwise at 888-296-3907 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PDT Monday through Friday, or visit the company’s website.
