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