P. Graham Dunn has issued a recall for about 500 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Wooden Toy Rattles, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced. The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using these recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed and notes that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

This recall involves a P. Graham Dunn Wooden Toy Rattle with light brown stain, eight wooden dowels and a gold-colored metal rattle inside. The toy rattle is circular in shape, measuring 2 ¾ inches by two inches.

The wooden dowels can be installed at an angle, allowing the metal rattle inside to become exposed. This poses a serious choking hazard to young children. To date, the firm is aware of four incidents of the metal rattle becoming exposed. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled P. Graham Dunn Wooden Toy Rattles were manufactured in China and distributed by P. Graham Dunn, of Dalton, Ohio and sold for about $6 in gift stores and book retailers nationwide from June 2010 through July.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the recalled product and contact P. Graham Dunn to receive a full refund. P. Graham Dunn can be reached, toll-free, at (800) 828-5260 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday or at the firm’s website at www.pgrahamdunn.com.
