Worldwise Inc., of San Rafael, California, has recalled about 223,000 SlyDog retractable Dog Leashes. The metal clasp connecting the leash to a dog’s collar can bend or break while in use, causing the leash to recoil back unexpectedly. This poses a serious risk of injury to consumers. Worldwise has received five reports of injuries, including facial cuts, a broken tooth, displaced eye lens, and a bruised collar bone. This recall involves the SlyDog™ Retractable Dog Leash with a metal clasp. 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 end of the leash has a metal clasp which connects to the dog’s collar. The SlyDog™ retractable leashes with a plastic clasp are not included in this recall. The leashes were sold by Dollar General Stores nationwide from September 2007 through August 2008 for about $5. Consumers should stop using these leashes immediately and return them to Worldwise Inc. for a full refund, including shipping costs.
