Sterling silver teething rings recalled for choking danger

About 1,000 sterling silver teething rings by Empire Silver are being recalled because parts on the rings may separate and release beads inside, creating a choking and aspiration hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday announced the recall of the rings sold in the following three styles:


  • Single ring with ball.
  • Single ring with heart and ball.
  • Three rings with ball.

The rings, which were manufactured in the U.S., were sold in U.S. stores beginning in November 2007 for between $50 and $120 US.

No associated injuries have been reported.

Consumers should take the teething rings away from children and return them for a refund or replacement.
