Hobby Lobby Recalls 14,000 Baby Rattles for Choking Hazard
Hobby Lobby recently announced the recall of 14,400 of its popular Fish Baby Rattles after determining the products can pose a choking hazard to children.
About the Hobby Lobby Baby Rattle Recall
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the rattle seams can break apart, exposing the stuffing fiber and the small rattle bell inside the rattle which can cause a child to choke if ingested.
The only guaranteed safety measure for children is that the rattle not be purchased. However, if you or anyone you know has purchased any one of these rattles and have had experiences with the rattle malfunctioning, please discontinue use of the product and return the product to the Hobby Lobby from which you purchased the rattle for a full refund.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the Hobby Lobby Stores at 800-326-7931 or visit their website hobbylobby.com and click the recall tab to inquire about more information.
