Release # 88-073
 

WASHINGTON, DC - Everlast Industrial Company of New York, N. Y. is recalling its imported Baby Rattle with Whistle because it presents a choking hazard to infants.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the rattle is being recalled because its handle is small enough to enter a child's mouth, and is long enough to reach the back of the throat. In addition, a metal bell can become separated from the top of the rattle and be ingested by a young child.

The rattle is multi-colored plastic, with a handle fashioned of beads and a circle of four bell-shaped noisemakers attached to the handle. The end of the handle is a whistle. The packaging is marked "Made in China" and "Baby Rattle with Whistle."

This hazardous rattle was identified at the port of New York during the CPSC-U.S. Customs Service cooperative program to check the safety of imported toys.

Parents should take the rattle away from infants immediately, then return it to the retail store where purchased or send it to Everlast Industrial Company (U.S.A.) Ltd., 519 Eighth Avenue Lobby, New York, N.Y. 10018 for a refund of the full purchase price.
