Wooden Toy Rattles
P. Graham Dunn of Dalton, Ohio, is recalling about 500 wooden toy rattles because the wooden dowels can be installed at an angle, allowing the metal rattle inside to become exposed. This poses a serious choking hazard to young children.
The firm is aware of four incidents of the metal rattle becoming exposed. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves a wooden toy rattle with light brown stain, eight wooden dowels and a gold-colored metal rattle inside. The toy rattle is circular in shape, measuring 2 3/4 inches by 2 inches.
They were made in China and sold at gift stores and book retailers nationwide from June through July 2010 for about $6.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact P. Graham Dunn to receive a full refund. For additional information, contact P. Graham Dunn at (800) 828-5260 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website.
