BRIO Corp. is recalling about 5,550 bell rattles. The small bell positioned between the wood slats can break and allow access to small parts. This poses a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves wooden rattles with six-multi-colored slats used to connect the two, red round ends. A metal bell is contained within the slats. The rattles measure 2 1/2-inches in diameter by 2 1/2-inches in height. The name BRIO appears on one of the wooden sides.
The rattles were sold by mail order, Internet and specialty toy stores nationwide from February 2005 through April 2006 for about $5.
Consumers should immediately take the toys away from children and contact K’NEX Industries, the U.S. distributor, for a free replacement toy.
