In August 2000, 310,000 Pasta Pals toys, distributed by Fazoli's Italian Restaurants have been recalled. The toy is a plastic barrel-shaped container with small plastic tomato and ravioli figures. The bottom of the container can fit over a young child's nose and mouth, posing a possible suffocation hazard.
The Pasta Pals blue container is about 2.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep. The toys were distributed from January 2000 through August 2000.
Parents have been advised to discard the container or return it to any Fazoli's restaurant for a free Italian Lemon Ice.
