RECALL: Kids II Infant Rattles Due to Choking Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kids II Inc, today announced the voluntary recall of about 19,000 Bright Starts Ring Rattles because the tip of the rattle’s antenna, which is attached to a bee figure, can detach and pose a choking hazard to small children.

Kids II has received two reports of the tip of the antenna detaching from the rattle, including one report that the purple ball from the tip of the antenna was in the baby’s mouth. No injuries have been reported.

The soft toy rattle is a bee with a yellow head, ring-shaped green body, blue/green wings and purple/red antennas. Model number 8534 and date code PA8 are printed on a sewn-in label on the bee’s head.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled rattles away from small children and contact Kids II toll-free at (877) 325-7056 (8 – 5 M-F) or visit the firm’s Web site at to receive a free replacement rattle.
