RECALL: Target Recalls Sports-Themed Rattles Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Target stores today announced a voluntary recall of about 82,000 Plush Boys Rattles. The recalled rattles can break open releasing the small beads inside, posing a choking hazard to young children. There were no reported incidents or injuries. The recalled rattles were sold in three styles: a white baseball with red stitching, a brown football with white stitching, and an orange basketball with black stitching. The tag sewn into the rattle contains: "Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu Chuan Road, Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China." They were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from March 2007 through May 2007 for about $1 and were manufactured in China.
