Head's up, parents!
A batch of these popular Oball baby rattles are being recalled. The company has received complaints of the plastic pieces breaking, at which point the beads get loose and become a choking hazard.
My son LOVES his and plays with it all the time! Sadly, it was included in the recall so no more Oball for him!
And just a tip-- it took me forever to find the code on it! I finally found it on the side of the ball, on the back of one of the clear plastic pieces (the things that hold the beads).
Here are the codes included in the recall: T0486, T1456, T2316, T2856 and T3065
The full recall affects about 680,000 rattles sold nationwide at Target, Walgreens and Walmart, as well as online at several retailers, between January 2016 and February 2017.
For more information, contact Kids II at 877-243-7314 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit www.kidsii.com and click on "recalls" at the bottom of the page.
