Target, in cooperation with the CPSC, is recalling about 82,000 Plush Boy Rattles because the rattles can break apart and release the small beads inside, which poses a choking hazard to young children.
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.”
So far Target has not received any reports of injury or death from the recalled product. The rattles were sold at Target stores across the country from March 2007 to May 2007. The rattles were manufactured in China.
