Mattel UK has identified a possible issue in the battery compartment of their Fisher-Price Sparkling Symphony Mobile Model No. 71985 manufactured before November 2000. In a very small number of cases battery fluid can leak from the battery compartment posing a risk of chemical burns. Household batteries can overheat or rupture under certain circumstances. This can happen if they are installed incorrectly or if old drained batteries are left inside the product.
