Washington, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Brio Scanditoy Corporation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, today announced that it is voluntarily recalling its Model #30051 Clickclack baby rattle. The firm reports that some of the Clickclack rattles are poorly glued at the ends. If the end part of the rattle comes unglued, the small blue wooden piece inside the rattle is exposed and presents a potential choking hazard to infants playing with the rattle. No incidents of injury have been reported.
Brio Scanditoy distributed approximately 5,000 Clickclack rattles between July 1984 and February 1985. The rattle is made in Sweden and retails in the U.S. for approximately $5.00.
The wooden Clickclack #30051 is approximately 4.25 inches long. It has a bright red hemispherically-shaped knob at each end of a hollow body that contains the small blue noisemaker.
Consumers should return Clickclack #30051 rattles for a full refund to the retail store from which they were purchased or mail the rattles directly to Brio Scanditoy Corporation, 6531 North Sidney Place, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53209. Consumers may call Brio Scanditoy toll-free for information on 800-558-6863.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
