February 3, 2011 - According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sassy Inc. is recalling about 37,000 Refreshing Rings infant teethers/rattles because they pose an ingestion hazard.
This Pennsylvania consumer alert involves Sassy teethers/rattles designed for babies 3 months and older. The rattles contain a red ring filled with water on one end and a black ball with white polka dots on the other. A black and white cord containing 3 floating rings connects both ends, and the packaging has style No. 80026 printed on it.
The teethers/rattles were sold at mass retailers and baby stores across the United States from July 2009 to January 2011 for around $5.
The ingestion hazard involves the polka-dotted ball. Tiny pieces of the ball can detach when children chew on the teether/rattle. Sassy, based in Kentwood, MI, is aware of one report of little pieces of plastic detaching from the ball. However, no injuries have been reported as of this posting.
Parents and caregivers are advised to remove the teethers/rattles from children immediately and contact Sassy regarding how to receive a free replacement. You can call Sassy at 1-800-323-6336.
