Kids II has recalled about 19,000 Bright Starts Ring Rattles. The tip of the rattle's antenna, which is attached to a bee figure, can detach and pose a choking hazard to small children. Kids II has received two reports of the tip of the antenna detaching from the rattle, including one report that the purple ball from the tip of the antenna was in the baby's mouth. No injuries have been reported.
The soft toy rattle is a bee with a yellow head, ring-shaped green body, blue/green wings and purple/red antennas. Model number 8534 and date code PA8 are printed on a sewn-in label on the bee's head.
These necklaces were manufactured in China and sold at toy stores, mass merchandisers, and other retail stores nationwide from January 2008 through June 2008 for about $2-3.
Parents should immediately take the recalled rattles away from small children and contact Kids II to receive a free replacement rattle. For more information, contact Kids II toll-free at (877) 325-7056 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site at www.kidsii.com
