Infantino pulls teethers for choking danger

California-based Infantino is recalling about 28,000 lion teethers because the plastic nose can unfasten, creating a choking hazard to young children.

The company has learned of eight incidents in which the nose separated from the teether, including one report of a child gagging on the nose.

The recall affects the teethers with the following date codes: 6116, 6129, 6158, 6137, 0606, 0806, 0906 and 1006.

The teethers, which were manufactured in China, were sold in U.S. stores from June 2006 through December 2007 for about $5 US each.

Consumers should take the teethers away from children and contact the company for a replacement.
