Vera Bradley recalls 98,000 Bear Ring Rattles and Bunny Toys

Vera Bradley recalled about 98,000 of its Bear Ring Rattles and Bunny Toys because the pom-pom tail can detach from the body of the bear rattle and the bunny, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The bear ring rattle has a white teddy bear head, arms attached to an O-shaped body with a green, blue, brown and pink crisscross pattern design rattle. The bear ring rattle measures about 4.25 inches in diameter. The bunny is 10 inches tall from the top of its head to the bottom of its foot and was sold in three printed patterns.

The company received two reports that the pom-pom tail detached from the product.  No injuries have been reported. For more information, go to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
