Health Canada is warning shoppers after some risky products were pulled from the market due to a number of injury risks.
A recall is for the Kid O Hudson Glow Rattle (teether and rattle), model number: 10486(K), a motion-activated rattle in the shape of a puppy.
“Legs can detach from the body, which may pose a choking hazard to young children,” Health Canada said in its reminder warning.
As of March 3, 2022, the company had received no incident reports in Canada and no injury reports. In the United States, the company received three incident reports and no injury reports.
Health Canada is asking buyers/parents to “immediately remove” the recalled rattles from children, “stop using the product and contact the company for additional information.”
The rattles were sold by Target, Amazon and Walmart, among other stores, from February 2018 to February 2022.
“At Walmart Canada, product safety is a top priority,” Walmart Canada spokeswoman Felicia Fefer said, adding that the rattles were offered for sale by third-party sellers on Walmart Canada’s Marketplace site.
“According to the recall, it has been withdrawn from sale.”
The company reported that approximately 200 units of the affected product have been sold in Canada and approximately 8,900 have been sold in the United States.
