The toy's U-shaped parts can break, posing a choking hazard.
The painted wood rattle is approximately 6 inches long and has a yellow ball at each end, two U-shaped pieces (red and pale blue) and an orange bead in the center with a green center post connecting all pieces.
They were sold at Baby and gift and specialty stores nationwide and online from March 2011 through July 2011 for about $12.
Consumers should take the rattles away from children immediately and return them to the store where purchased to receive a full refund.
