Infantino Recalls Infant Rattles

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Infantino LLC, of San Diego, CA, announced a voluntary recall of the Infantino Lamb Grabby Rattles. The tail-piece on the rattles can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The recalled Infantino Lamb Grabby Rattles™ are shaped like a lamb with an Infantino elliptical-shaped logo stamped on the front right foot of the lamb. Only rattles with date code 0907 printed on the back of the left ear of the lamb are included in the recall. The production batch code is printed in a dial format with the year in the middle of a circle and an arrow pointing to the number on the circle that indicates the month. Rattles that do not have a date code are not included in the recall. Recalled items were sold at Wal-Mart, Babies "R" Us and specialty stores nationwide from September 2007 through February 2008 for between $3 and $4.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled toys away from young children and contact Infantino for a replacement rattle or a product of equal value. For additional information, contact Infantino toll-free at (888) 808-3111 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT or visit the firm�s Web site at
