Choking Hazard Leads to Recall of 4,000 Baby Spoons and Forks
4,000 spoons and forks with Gingham Bunnies on the handles are being recalled because of the potential for an injury to be incurred by the children the item was designed for. The Taunton, Massachusetts-based Reed and Barton Corporation announced the recall, which was deemed necessary once it was discovered that the bunny ears’ pink coloring is in danger of being dislodged. A baby could then potentially choke on or swallow the item. One instance of the coloring being removed has been reported, but that thankfully did not lead to any kind of an injury. The items, which were available across the country from this past September to January, should be brought back to the company for a replacement spoon or fork.
