WWRD U.S. LLC recalled approximately 670 units of its Wedgwood Peter Rabbit decorative baby rattles due to the discovery that the ball bearings inside carry the risk of choking young children if they escape their casing, according to an announcement released on February 4 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The company has already been made aware of two incidents of the bearings being released from the baby rattle, although no children have suffered injuries. The recalled product is apparently intended for decorative purposes only and not as a functioning baby rattle. The rattle measures 4 ½” long by 2″ wide.
WWRD has already warned consumers to stop using the product and to take them away from children. Consumers may contact the company for full a refund.
