A popular toy among young children has been recalled due to a choking hazard.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Oball Rattles are recalled because the clear plastic on the outside of the ball can break, releasing small beads, posing a choking hazard.
There have been 42 reports of the plastic disc breaking releasing small beads including two reports of beads found in children’s mouths and three reports of gagging, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The recall involves Oball Rattles in pink, blue, green and orange with model number 81031 printed on the inner surface of one of the plastic discs and on the packaging. The balls have 28 finger holes and measure four inches in diameter. Only rattles with date codes T0486, T1456, T2316, T2856 and T3065 located on a small triangle on the inner surface of the rattle are included in the recall. The first three numbers represent the day of the year and the last digit represents the year of production.
The rattles are sold at major retailers nationwide and online sold after January 1, 2016 for approximately $7.99.
