Infant teether rattles are being recalled because they could cause an ingestion choking hazard for children, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission .
Sassy Inc. is recalling nearly 37,000 Refreshing Rings infant teethers/rattles because “small pieces of the plastic ball can become loose, which can be ingested by the child chewing on the teether/rattle,” according to the CPSC.
The CPSC reported, “This recall involves Refreshing Rings infant teethers/rattles intended for babies ages three months and older. The product has a red, water-filled ring on one end and a black and white polka dot ball on the other end. The two ends of the rattles/teethers are connected by a black and white, flexible plastic rod with three floating rings. Style number 80026 is printed on the packaging.”
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer , I’m glad the company caught this product safety risk before any children were injured. Consumers with this item should stop letting their infant use it, and contact Sassy Inc. for a free replacement toy.
