Parents of infants might want to check out their babies’ teething rings and rattles. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) announced recalls today for two styles of wooden rattles, as well as a liquid-filled teething ring.
Prisma and Duo Style Wooden Baby Rattles
Kid O Products, LLC of Perth Amboy, N.J. is recalling about 1,500 Prisma and Duo style wooden baby rattles. According to the CPSC, the recalled baby rattleâ€™s beads can come off when the rattle is twisted or pulled forcefully, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The Prisma rattle is shaped as a bell with a loop handle and has style number 10331. The rattle measures about 3 Â¾- inches long. â€œPrismaâ€ and the style number can be found on the packaging. The Duo rattle is two interlocked rings with red and blue bead accents. â€œDuoâ€ and style number 10333 is printed on the packaging. The rattles were sold at specialty childrenâ€™s stores nationwide from November 2010 through December 2010 for about $12.

Cool-it Soother Teething Rings
About 7,000 Cool-it Soothers by Vulli are being recalled because bacteria and mold can grow inside the teetherâ€™s untreated liquid if the teether is punctured. This poses an ingestion hazard to infants and can lead to diarrhea and vomiting, the CPSC said.
The Cool-it Soother teething ring is clear and is attached to a green plastic handle in the shape of the character â€œGnon.â€ The product was sold in small childrenâ€™s specialty stores nationwide and online at www.amazon.com from January 2008 through November 2010 for about $10.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled teething ring away from children and return it to Calisson for a free replacement teething ring.
