Zodiac Rattle Drum
This recall involves the Zodiac Rattle Drum. This product is available in 12 different styles of cartoon animals. All styles have a rainbow coloured handle and long beaded strings hanging from both sides of the drum. The UPC code is 6 464646 853255.
Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these rattles do not meet the Canadian safety requirements for rattles. The beaded string and the base of the rattle can enter and become lodged in a child’s throat, posing a choking or suffocation hazard to young children.
Neither Health Canada nor Discount Hub has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these rattles in Canada.
