The seams on the rattle can open during use, releasing small round beads. The beads can pose an aspiration hazard to young children. The breakage can also create ragged edges on the ring, posing a laceration hazard.
This recall involves about 47 Tiffany & Co. Paloma Rattles. The rattle is a ring that is 2.5 inches in diameter. It consists of nine linked sterling-silver balls that contain small beads.
Tiffany and Company sold these rattles in its stores and catalogs and on its Web site from January 2005 through March 2006 for about $195. This recall involves rattles sold in March 2006.
