Recall - Manhattan Toy QuixelTM Baby Rattle

Web posted on December 04, 2013

This recall involves the Manhattan Toy QuixelTM Baby Rattle. The plastic rattles feature coloured arches (red, orange, green, and blue) with sliding beads on each of the single arches. The arches are held together by a single string of red, white, and blue elastic. The rattle measures about 12.7 centimetres (5 inches) in diameter. The product was sold with or without a box.

The coloured arches can break near the ends, releasing a small part which can pose a choking hazard to small children.
