Tiffany and Company Recalls
Paloma Rattles for Aspiration and Laceration Hazards
Tiffany and Company is announcing
a recall of Paloma rattles. Seams
on the rattle can open, releasing small round
beads. The beads can pose an aspiration hazard
to young children. The breakage can also create
ragged edges on the ring, posing a laceration
hazard. Customers should stop using the product
immediately unless otherwise instructed.
CPSC and Tiffany and Company have
received no reports of injuries or incidents of
the product breaking in actual use. This recall
is being conducted as a precaution, based on the
results of routine product safety testing.
Paloma Rattle is a ring that is 2.5 inches in
diameter. It's made up of nine linked sterling-silver
balls that contain small beads.
They were sold at Tiffany and Company
stores, catalogs and on its Web site from January
2005 through March 2006.
Consumers should take these rattles
away from babies and return the product to Tiffany
and Company for a full refund or a store credit.
For more information, customers
can contact Tiffany
and Company at (800) 464-5000 between 10 a.m.
and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
