The Consumer Product Safety Commission and BRIOÃ‚Â® Corp. of Germantown, Wisconsin, a subsidiary of BRIO AB, of Sweden, have announced the recall of some 2,100 BRIOÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Pull-along Snails because the snail toy is sold with a rattle containing a bell. The rattle can come apart, and the bell poses a small parts choking hazard to young children.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.
The recalled toy snails were manufactured in China and sold at specialty toy stores nationwide, Web retailers and mail order catalogs from September 2005 through January 2006 for about $13.
To date, no injuries or incidents have been reported.

On the back of the snail is a removable green bell rattle with a yellow swirl and multi-colored posts. The rattle measures 2.25-inches in diameter and 2-inches high. A BRIO logo is printed on the back end of the snail and a yellow cord is attached at the front.
