Target Recalls Toys Due to Choking Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Target, today announced a voluntary recall of about 82,000 Plush Boys Rattles.

The recalled rattles can break open releasing the small beads inside, posing a choking hazard to young children.

No injuries have been reported.

The recalled rattles were sold in three styles: a white baseball with red stitching, a brown football with white stitching, and an orange basketball with black stitching.

The tag sewn into the rattle contains: Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu Chuan Road, Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China.

The toys were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from March 2007 through May 2007 for about $1.

They were manufactured in China.

Consumers should take the recalled rattles away from young children immediately and return them to any Target store for a full refund.

For additional information, contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site listed below.
