Dangerous Baby Rattles Recalled For Choking Hazards


Uh oh! About 12,000 Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ baby rattles (8,300 in the US and 4,100 in Canada) have been recalled by the Manhattan Group because of choking hazards. 

Why the product is being recalled: The colored arches can break, creating a small part which poses a choking hazard to small children.

Description: This recall includes the Manhattan Toy® Quixel™ baby rattle. The plastic rattles have four, colored arches (red, orange, green and blue) with sliding beads on each of the arches. The arches are held together by a single string of red, white and blue elastic.  

The rattle arches measure about 5 inches in diameter.  The product was sold with or without a box. “Manhattan Toy” is printed on one of the arches. 

Where it was sold: The rattles were sold at specialty toy and baby stores nationwide, in Canada and online at www.manhattantoy.com from September 2011 through October 2013 for about $15

Consumers should immediately take these rattles away from young children and return it to the store where purchased for a full refund.
