The Danger:

The recall includes about 6,500 shaker guiros, which are ridged, cylinder-shaped percussion instruments that contain beads and are played by scraping a stick along the surface. The shaker guiro measures about 2 inches wide by 5 inches long. One end of the instrument is painted red and one end is painted blue. The center section and stick are natural wood. "Basic Beat 5 Guiro/Shaker," "SHBB5," and "Recommended for Ages 6+" are printed on the packaging.
