Fresh Feeders baby cubes with rattle

Product description

This recall involves a type of rattle into which food can be introduced in the silicone pouch, enabling the baby to taste various foods. The products can be identified by UPC 737278069711.

Baby Cubes feeders are shaped in a rattle-type circular handle to which the silicone pouch is attached. Only one model is available: Ref# SH-9711 in a green and yellow colour.

Hazard identified

This toy does not meet the Canadian safety requirements for the size and shape of rattles. The handle of these rattles can enter and become lodged in a child's throat which poses a choking/suffocation hazard to young children.

The latch can also break and detach from the rattle, which poses a choking hazard to young children. If the latching system opens, the food contained in the silicone pouch can also pose a choking risk.

An incident in which the latching system broke was reported to Health Canada but no injury was reported.
