Choking Risk Leads to Recall of 1,900 Animal-Shaped Baby Rattles

Posted on

1,900 baby rattles are being recalled by the Cannon Falls, Minnesota-based Midwest-CBK due to a possible choking threat.  These items are in the shape of either a lion, bear, or a monkey.  Unfortunately, it’s this shape that contributes to the possible hazard, as the head of the “animal” is in danger of falling off.  If a child attempts to swallow the small item, he or she could choke.  Available across the country between this past July and December, the items should be removed from a children’s grasp.  Refunds can be obtained from the company.  One incident without injury has been reported.  Owners can identify the rattle via a tag relating the batch number of 00001281 and a date of production of April 2013.
