CPSC Product Recall: Gripper Shaker Musical Instruments Pose Injury Hazards

Shokan, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Woodstock Percussion Inc. voluntarily recalled 9,400 Gripper Shaker musical instruments in the U.S. and 700 instruments in Canada for choking and laceration hazards. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on June 2, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the handle can detach from the shaker, which exposes a rough edge. This poses a laceration hazard to children. In addition, the detached handle also exposes small steel pellets and a plastic plug, which also poses choking hazards to consumers.

“The shakers are plastic musical instruments, 5.5 inches long, with rounded, egg-shaped tops containing steel pellets and open circular handles. They come in blue and green and are sold separately. The marking ‘B4’ is printed on the rounded top of each shaker,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact Woodstock Percussion Inc. to receive a $7 refund.
