Defective Twirllaâ„¢ Wooden Rattle are being recalled for choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced.
About 3,300 Twirllaâ„¢ Wooden Rattles are being recalled in the United States; another 145 are being recalled in Canada.
The defective Twirllaâ„¢ Wooden Rattles were manufactured in Thailand by the Manhattan Group LLC, of Minneapolis, Minnesota and were sold at baby and gift and specialty stores nationwide and online at ManhattanToy.com from March 2011 through July 2011 for about $12.
The toy’s U-shaped parts can break, posing a choking hazard. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
The painted wood rattle is approximately 6 inches long and has a yellow ball at each end, two U-shaped pieces (red and pale blue) and an orange bead in the center with a green center post connecting all pieces. The moving parts make noise when they come together.
The firm is advising consumers to take the recalled Twirllaâ„¢ Wooden Rattles away from children immediately and return them to the store where purchased to receive a full refund.
