More than 45,000 baby rattles are being recalled after two reported incidents of them separating and the small pellets being accessible to children.
The recall involves the "Buff Baby" baby rattle, which looks like a dumbbell and contains small plastic pelts inside.
The rattles were sold from October 2011 to June 2013 at specialty toy and baby stores nationwide and also through amazon.com and other online vendors for between $7 and $10.
Officials said the rattle caps can separate leaving allowing the small pellets to fall out, posing a choking hazard. So far, no injures have been reported.
Consumers should immediately take the rattle away from children and contact Fred & Friends for a full refund. For more details, visit their website here and click on the Product Recall Information at the bottom of the page.
