The Department of Public Health's Environmental Health Division is currently looking into another voluntary recall recently announced by Mattel. This is the fifth time in less than four months that the toy manufacturer has urged retail establishments to pull their products off of store shelves.

The item being recalled includes the Fisher-Price "Laugh and Learn 2-in-1 Learning Kitchen", which may pose a choking hazard to kids. Environmental specialist James Quichocho says despite limited resources, the division continues to works on these recalls on a day-to-day basis, telling KUAM News, "There's more than thirty-some different mandates that we do, with only fifteen people, so you figure out the math. We're way understaffed, but we do what we can. And we do the best that we can with each mandate."

Meanwhile, Quichocho says he is also still working on the recent recall of Totino's and Jeon's brand frozen pizzas announced this passed weekend. If you want to find out more about these recalls, you may contact the Division at 735-7221.
