WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation Sassy Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of the Refreshing Rings Infant Teethers/Rattlers.

About 37,000 of the teethers/rattlers have been recalled because of the risk of small children choking on them. Small pieces of the plastic ball can detach as a result of children chewing on the teether/rattle, posing an ingestion hazard.

The firm has received one report of pieces of the black plastic from the polka dot ball detaching while being chewed. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Refreshing Rings infant teethers/rattles intended for babies ages three months and older. The product has a red, water-filled ring on one end and a black and white polka dot ball on the other end.

The two ends of the rattles/teethers are connected by a black and white, flexible plastic rod with three floating rings. Style number 80026 is printed on the packaging.

It was sold between July 2009 and January 2011 for about $5.00.
