If you have a toy called “Four Paws Rough and Rugged Pimple Ball with Bell” it has been recalled due to a design malfunction that can cause a vacuum to be created when your dog plays with it, potentially resulting in your dog’s tongue being sucked through the opening. This has resulted in injury to several dogs, some with severe results. It saddens me greatly to think that any business would not have the best interests of their clients at heart.
