Manhattan Group recalled about 12,400 of its Quixel baby rattles in the United States and Canada because the colored arches can break, creating a small part which poses a choking hazard to small children. 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.
No injuries have been reported, but the company received four reports of the rattles breaking. For more information, go the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Website.
