Target Recalls Baby Rattles and Ornaments for Choking Hazard


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Plush Baby Rattles and Photo Frame Ornaments

Units: About 460,000

Manufacturer: Target, of Minneapolis, Minn.

Hazard: Small parts on the plush rattles and frame ornaments can break or detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. Additionally, the rattles' plastic ring can break and expose sharp points.

Incidents/Injuries: Target has received 11 reports of the pompoms, eyes, nose and bows detaching from rattles and frame ornaments, including one report of a baby mouthing a detached part. No injuries have been reported.

The plush animals either have a rattle inside or a plastic ring attached. The photo frame ornaments are a pink bear or green moose holding either a square or heart-shaped frame.

Sold at: Target stores exclusively nationwide from November 2006 through December 2006 for $1.
