Brights Starts star teether beads are being recalled across Canada and the U.S. because they could cause infants to choke, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The commission said the flexible plastic ring that holds the beads may split or crack, causing some of the soft beads to come loose.
The Georgia-based distributor, Kids II Inc., says it has received 21 reports of the ring cracking. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves the model 8483 Bright Starts Star Teether beads, which were sold at children's clothing stores across Canada and the U.S. from August 2006 through January 2007 for about $3.99 Cdn each.
Consumers should stop take the product away from their children and contact the company for a replacement.
