RECALL: Select HABA Infant Toys Due To Choking Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Habermaass Corp, today announced the voluntary recall of about 118,000 Wooden Puzzles, Infant Rattles, Pacifier Holders, and Stroller Toys because the wooden rattles, pacifier holders, and stroller toys contain small pieces including glued on mirrors and/or prisms that can detach, posing a choking hazard to infants. The head of the ladybug puzzle pieces also poses a choking hazard.

Habermaass Corp.(HABA) has received 15 reports of incidents involving the recalled puzzles, rattles, and pacifier holders including pieces of the rattles detaching and being mouthed by young children.

The puzzles, rattle toys, pacifier holders, and stroller toys are wooden and are described in the chart below. “HABA” is printed on them.

Parents are being asked to immediately take the recalled puzzles, rattles, pacifier holders and stroller toys away from children and contact Habermaass at (800) 468-6873 ext. 107 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.HABAusa.com/safety to receive a free replacement product or a full refund.
