Health Canada is recalling an eight-piece link toy imported by Dollarama because of a choking hazard.
The recall involves a rattle sold under the name Link Toy. The product has eight coloured plastic rings that link together. The rings are magenta, green, blue and yellow. The recalled toy can be identified by item number 19-1900307.
Testing by Health Canada shows the Link Toy rattle can pose a choking hazard to young children. The individual rings are small enough that they can enter and become lodged in a child's throat.
The toy does not meet the Canadian safety requirements for the size and shape of rattles. Neither Dollarama nor Health Canada has received reports of incidents or injuries.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy away from children and dispose of it in regular household garbage.
Approximately 59,589 link toys were sold at Dollarama stores across Canada from November 2008 to July 2009.
For more information, consumers may contact Dollarama Customer Service at 1-888-755-1006 (extension 1000).
