Recall Issued for Midwest-CBK Baby Rattles

Potential for detaching of rattle heads creating possible choking hazards

Washington, DC (I-Newswire) January 22, 2014 - About 1900 units of a Midwest-CBK brand baby rattle are being recalled due to a product defect that has potential to become a choking hazard for infants and toddlers.

The toys are donut-shaped and made of knit polyester fabric material. They have heads and arms that are made to resemble a lion, a monkey or a bear. They are approximately seven inches in diameter and about two inches thick. Sold under the brand name Sweet-ums, the company logo and Midwest-CBK are visibly printed on a permanent hang tag sewn into the rattle. The production date is listed as 04/2013 and is identifiable by Batch Number 00001281.

As of now, the manufacturer has received only one report of the problem. The head of the rattle can potentially detach and create a choking hazard. No injuries or deaths have been reported. Consumers are advised to take the effected rattles away from children, especially infants, and contact Midwest-CBK immediately. The company is offering a full refund of the purchase price on the effected batch.

Midwest-CBK LLC is based in Canon Falls, MN. The rattles were manufactured in China.

"We applaud Midwest-CBK for their swift attention to this issue," said Drazen Alcocer, Founder and CEO of iFederated, parent company to consumer website "We are also relieved that there was only one instance where I child was potentially put in harm's way before action was taken. That is not always the case."

iFederated Chairman Artin Afsharjavan expressed his relief also. "The safety of children is one of the most important things I can think of why a site like exists," he said. "If my child were playing with a toy and it fell apart like that, I would want other people to be warned immediately. With, community members are able to to just that."
