The large merchandiser Target in concert with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of approximately 82,000 ‘Plush Boys Rattles’ because of a choking hazard. The rattles were manufactured in China.
The cloth rattles have the propensity to be torn open by children, releasing beads that present a choking hazard. Parents are advised to remove the rattles from children as soon as possible.
The recalled rattles were sold at Target in three varieties: a white baseball rattle , a brown football with white stitching, and an orange basketball with black stitching. The identification tag on the rattles bears the lettering, “Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co. Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu-Chuan Roan Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China.”
Rattles can be returned to any Target store for a full refund. For pictures see these recalled rattles.
