Kids II infant rattles recalled

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Kids II infant rattles because of a choking hazard.

The rattles, imported from China by Kids II Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga., include antenna attached to a bee figure. The tip of the antenna can detach, posing a choking hazard to small children, CPSC said in a statement.

About 19,000 of the recalled rattles were sold between January 2008 and June 2008 for between $2 and $3 each.

The rattles are a soft toy shaped like a bee with a yellow head and a stripped, green body. Recalled items include model No. 8534 with the date code PA8.

Consumers were advised to take the pacifiers away from children and contact Kids II for a free replacement.

Consumers can also call Kids II at at 877-325-7056 for more information.
