Battat Recalls Infant Teethers Sold At Target

battat april15 lt

Battat is recalling infant teethers sold exclusively at retail major Target Corp. citing choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.

The recall involves B. toys Light-Up Firefly Teether Glowy Chews - Firefly Frank, plastic infant teethers. About 61,000 units were sold in the United States and about 210 were sold in Canada. The colorful teethers shaped like a Firefly are blue, green and red and light up when shaken.

According to the agency, the plastic wings can detach from the body of the teether, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The recall was initiated after Battat received 14 reports of the wings detaching or pieces of the wing breaking off, including one report of a child choking on a broken piece of the wing.

The toys were manufactured in China and imported by Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Target. They were sold at Target stores across the country and online at Target.com from July 2019 through February 2021 for about between $6 and $10.

Consumers are urged to return the toys to any Target store for a full refund, or contact Battat to return by mail for a full refund.

In similar incidents, Playgro this week recalled about 18,000 units of Clip Clop infant activity rattles due to choking hazard to small children.
