Oball Rattles recalled because of possible choking hazard

Kids II issued a recall Thursday on its Oball Rattles in pink, blue, green and orange with model number 81031 printed on the inner surface of one of the plastic discs and on the packaging.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the balls have 28 finger holes and measure four inches in diameter. The rattles are embedded with a clear plastic disc that holds orange beads and two clear plastic discs with beads of varying colors on the perimeter.

Only rattles with date codes T0486, T1456, T2316, T2856 and T3065 located on a small triangle on the inner surface of the rattle are included in the recall.

There have been 42 reports of the plastic disc breaking, releasing small beads. Two reports of beads found in children’s mouths and three reports of gagging were included.

Owners of the recalled rattles should contact the company for a full refund. The rattles were sold nationwide at various outlets such as Target, Walmart, Walgreens and Amazon.
