image for Babies Balk At Bathing Due To Rubber Ducky Recall

In yet another massive recall of toys made in China the FDA today announced an immediate nationwide recall of all rubber duckies due to cancer causing yellow dye #247 which was used to give the adorable and much loved toy its attractive color.

As virtually all toys are now made in China the recall involves all rubber duckies in the United States. Mothers are urged to immediately remove any rubber duckies from the home.

Young children throughout America became emotionally distraught as mommies scooped up the beloved toy from the baths of their sons and daughters. In bathrooms across the U.S., rubber ducky squeaks were replaced by the sobs and cries of babies and little children, balking at bathing without their bobbing little yellow rubber ducky bath toy.

A spokesperson for American Kids With Toys issued a statement on the recall. "How does China expect our children to take a bath without a rubber ducky? A childhood without a rubber ducky is no childhood at all!"

In response to the recall, in Beijing the Chinese Rubber Ducky Manufacturers Association took their CEO out to lunch then took him out and shot him.
