Target withdraws 82,000 plush rattles for choking danger

Minnesota-based Target is recalling about 82,000 plush rattles because the toys may break and spill small beads, presenting a choking hazard to young children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

No associated injuries have been reported.

The recall affects the following three styles:

  • White baseball with red stitching.
  • Brown football with white stitching.
  • Orange basketball with black stitching.

The tag on the rattle reads: "Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu Chuan Road, Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China."

The rattles were sold at Target stores in the U.S. from March 2007 through May 2007 for about $1 US.

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