The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Baby Rattles are subject to this recall:

  • VTech Baby Shake and Sing Elephant Rattles, purple elephant-shaped rattles with one (1) yellow ear and one (1) blue ear. The recalled Rattles also have a black and white striped handles with red and blue beads. The Rattles were sold with a SKU of 80-184803

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Baby Rattles are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, in certain extreme cases such as strong torsion of the ear or violent shock against a hard surface), one of the Elephant’s rotating ears may detach. This exposes a small, blunt metal rod, partially covered in white plastic that remains attached to the Rattle. If this defect occurs, if the ear comes off the Rattle, the small, plastic coated, blunt metal protrusion may cause pain if pressed against the skin.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Baby Rattles, please do not use them nor let your child play with or near. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
