Kentwood, MI—About 37,000 Refreshing Rings infant teethers/rattles were voluntarily recalled by Sassy Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for ingestion hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on January 31, 2011.

The recall was initiated after discovering that small pieces of the plastic ball can become loose, which can be ingested by the child chewing on the teether/rattle.

The CPSC 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.”

Consumers are advised to contact Sassy Inc. to learn how to return the product for a free replacement toy.
