If you have any wooden baby rattles in your home or childcare center, immediately check to make sure they’re not the Kid O rattle that was recalled today (styles Prisma and Duo). The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that these rattle contain beads that can come off, posing a choking hazard. About 1500 rattles were sold at specialty children’s stores across the country during November and December 2010 for about $12. Although no injuries have been reported thus far, it’s important to take the rattles away from children and return them to the store they were purchased at or to Kid O directly, for a full refund. Here’s a description of the rattle from CPSC press release:
