Baby Rattle Recall: Potential Choking Hazard for Infants

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Infantino, LLC., have announced that they are expanding a prior baby rattle recall first issued in March 2008, bringing the total number of Infantino Lamb and Lion Rattles recalled to about 131,000.

The baby rattles contain a tail-piece which can detach, potentially resulting in a choking hazard.

In March 2008, approximately 20,000 Infantino Lamb Grabby Rattles were recalled after reports of at least 8 rattles having the tail-piece come off.

Since that time, at least 10 additional reports have been received by Infantino, leading to the expansion of the recall to also include another 111,000 Infantino Lion Grabby Rattles.

The recalled rattles are shaped like a brightly colored lamb or a lion with a body shaped like a ring. An elliptical Infantino logo is stamped on the animal’s front right foot.

Units without tails on the animals and those with production codes 0108 and 0508 are not affected by the recall. The production code is located behind the ear and resembles a dial with the year (08) in the middle of the circle and an arrow pointing towards the number on the circle(01 or 05) indicating the month.

The rattles have been sold throughout the United States since May 2007 at Babies “R” Us, Wal-Mart and other stores for between $3 and $4.

Parents have been urged to take the recalled baby rattles away from their children and to contact Intantino for a free replacement rattle or product of equal value by calling (888) 808-3111 or visiting
