The Baby Spot rattle recalled nationwide over choking fears after seven years on sale

A baby rattle has been recalled over fears it could provide a choking hazard, after being on sale for seven years.

The ladybug-printed baby rattle has been sold nationwide by The Baby Spot since November 2013.

On Friday, Australia’s consumer watchdog deemed it a potential choking hazard due to its size and shape and issued a recall notice.

“The product does not comply with the size and shape requirements of the mandatory standard ‘Consumer Protection Notice No. 14 of 2003 – Consumer Product Safety Standard: Toys for children up to and including 36 months of age’,” the ACCC said in a statement.

“The product may pose a choking or suffocation hazard for young children, which can lead to severe injury or death.”
