Children's toys withdrawn from marketplace

About 2,000 ball rattles, wrist rattles and windup toys are being recalled from the marketplace because they contain small parts that could cause young children to choke, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The toys, imported by Tri-Star International Inc., were sold at dollar stores in California from January 2005 through May 2007 for about $1 US.

The recall applies to a multicoloured ball rattle, a wrist rattle with multicoloured balls and a windup pink giraffe toy.

No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should take the toys away from children and return them to the store for a refund.
