Baby Rattles Recalled Over Choking Hazard

Rattles are often children’s first toys, in large part because they are considered safe and stimulating for small babies. However, as San Diego product liability lawyers, we know that not all baby gear is created equal.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Manhattan Group is recalling more than 8,000 of its Toy Quixel baby rattles. The colored arches on the rattle can break into small parts. Since babies tend to put everything in or near their mouths, this clearly creates a choking hazard for small children.

The Manhattan Group has received four reports of the rattles breaking. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

For parents who are concerned that their child may have this particular type of toy, the rattles have four colored arches (red, orange, green and blue) with sliding beads on each of the arches. The arches are held together by a single string of red, white and blue elastic. They were sold at specialty toy and baby stores and online at www.manhattantoy.com from September 2011 through October 2013 for about $15.

Parents and caregivers are advised to immediately take these rattles away from young children and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
