Sterling teether rings recalled for choking hazard

About 200 sterling silver teether rings, imported by North Carolina-based Elegant Baby and Baby Needs Inc., are being pulled because they pose a choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The CPSC warns hearts and cars on the teethers may break off. The company has learned of one baby mouthing a heart when it broke off the teether.

The teethers were sold in U.S. boutiques from February 2005 through to September 2006 for about $50 US. The products were manufactured in Mexico.

Caregivers should take the teethers away from infants and contact the company for a refund.
