Kleynimals stainless steel keys for babies

Product description

This recall involves the Kleynimals Clean Key Animals toy, which is classified as an infant rattle in Canada. The rattle is made of three stainless steel keys on a stainless steel ring, similar to a set of house keys. There are three animal-themed "keys": an Elephant, a Giraffe and a Lion. Each key is flat and approximately 6 centimetres (2.4 inches) long.

The recalled rattles can also be identified by the UPC 853853003007, located on the label on the bag that came with the product.

Hazard identified

Assessment by Health Canada has revealed that the keys do not meet the requirements for the size and shapes of rattles. They are small enough to enter into and become lodged in a young child's throat, posing a choking or suffocation hazard.

Neither Health Canada nor Kleynimals, LLC. has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this toy.
