WASHINGTON, D.C. - Full House Manufacturer, Inc., of New York, is voluntarily recalling some 1,440 "Royal" brand super chime rattles because the handles present a choking hazard to infants.
The cylinder-shaped rattle is multicolored, about seven inches long, and comes with a ring attached to the handle. The rattle is labeled "Kate Production 1982 Royal." Rattles were sold nationally in discount stores in a blister package labeled "ROYAL MADE IN TAIWAN, ROYAL BABY TOY NO. 2012 TTH" for about $3.00 each.
Consumers should take the rattles away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
