Choking Hazard Prompts Children's Toy Recall
A children’s musical toy has been recalled by Battat Inc. after small parts were shown to detach and pose a choking hazard, according to recent news sources.
The product is a Musical Wooden Table Toy, and about 14,000 are subject to recall. The table has a green surface and has instruments attached to it. The instruments include a xylophone, cymbal, drum and two drumsticks. The table has three legs.
The xylophone pegs have been shown to detach, making them small enough for a young child to swallow. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that they have received nine complaints of loosened or detached pegs. No injuries have occurred thus far.
The toy as sold at music and toy stores all over the U.S., as well as on the internet, for about $30. They were sold from September 2006 through October 2010.
The toy should be taken away from children. Consumers can contact Battat in order to arrange for replacement parts.
