Tri-Star International Recalls a trio of children’s toys due to a choking hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Tri-Star today announced a voluntary recall of about 2,000 Ball Rattles, Wrist Rattles, & Wind-Up Toys. These toys contain small parts, posing a choking hazard to young children. There were no reports of injuries. The recall involves three different types of toys. The ball rattle is a multi-colored, 3-inch ball with oval openings and a small hexagon opening at each end. The wrist rattle toy is a white plastic wristband toy with six multi-colored balls with small bells inside. The wind-up toy is a 7.5-inch pink giraffe with yellow legs and a green wind-up knob below the tail of the giraffe. The toys were sold at Dollar stores, most specifically in California, from January 2005 through May 2007 for about $1.
Consumers should immediately take these toys away from children and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. For additional information, contact Tri-Star at 510-856-8785 anytime or CPSC’s Hotline at 800-638-2772 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
