The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Target announced a voluntary recall of approximately 82,000 Plush Boys Rattles. They are recommending that consumers stop using the recalled products immediately.
While no injuries have been reported, the recalled rattles could break open releasing the small beads inside, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The recalled rattles were sold in three styles: a white baseball with red stitching, a brown football with white stitching, and an orange basketball with black stitching. The tag sewn into the rattle contains: “Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu Chuan Road, Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China.”
They were sold at Target stores nationwide from March 2007 through May 2007 for about $1.
Consumers should take the recalled rattles away from young children immediately and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
