December 4, 2013: Manhattan Group Recalls Baby Rattles
Manhattan Group has announced a voluntary recall of their Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ Baby Rattles, sold nationwide
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Manhattan Group, has announced a voluntary recall of their Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ Baby Rattles, sold at toy and baby stores nationwide. About 12,400 units are being recalled.
What’s the Deal?
Manhattan Group has determined that the Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ Baby Rattles pose a choking hazard. The colored arches can break, creating a small part which creates a choking hazard for small children. Manhattan Group has received four reports of the rattles breaking, but so far no injuries have been reported.
Do You Own It?
The Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ Baby Rattles are made of plastic and have four, colored arches, in red, orange, green and blue, with sliding beads on each of the arches. They measure about 5 inches in diameter. “Manhattan Toy” is printed on one of the arches, and they are held together by a single string of red, white and blue elastic. They are sold both with or without a box.
The plastic rattles could be purchased at Manhattan Toy online and nationwide between September 2011 through October 2013 for about $15.
What Should You Do?
First, determine if the rattle is included in this recall. Stop using the rattle and return it to the store where you purchased it in order to receive a full refund.
