A rolling xylophone toy has been recalled after it was found by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to pose a choking hazard to children.
The Land of Nod has agreed voluntarily to recall the toy, the commission said in an advisory issued on Wednesday.
The pegs on the xylophone can break off the rolling toy and create a choking hazard.
The Land of Nod has received 22 reports of the pegs breaking off of the metal, wood and plastic xylophone.
The toy was sold online and at stores throughout the U.S. from October 2007 until March 2008. It has a retail value of about $45.
Consumers are being asked to return the product to the Land of Nod for a credit and gift card.
