82,000 China-made Plush Rattles Recalled for Choking Hazard

Posted by Author on October 3, 2007

CNNMoney.com, October 2 2007-

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) – Target Corp. has recalled about 82,000 sports-themed rattles made in China because of a choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Tuesday.

The CPSC said the toys – in the shapes of a baseball, a football and a basketball – can break open, which releases the beads inside.

The rattles were sold nationwide in Target stores from March to May of this year for about a dollar each.

The toys have a tag reading “Reg. No. PA5706(CN), Distributed by Double Nice Co Ltd. 3f-2 No. 325, Wu Chuan Road, Taichung, Taiwan, Made in China.”

The CPSC said no injuries from the recalled rattles have been reported, but consumers who have them are urged to take them away from young children immediately and return them to the nearest Target (Charts, Fortune 500) store for a refund.

More information about the recall is available on the Target Web site (www.target.com) or by calling (800) 440-0680.

Just last week, Target recalled 350,000 Happy Giddy Gardening Tools and Children’s Sunny Patch Chairs, also made in China, due to excessive levels of lead paint.

China’s State Council has said it is in the midst of a four-month campaign to improve the quality of goods produced in the country.
