    Manhattan Group recalled thousands of The Quixel baby rattle in the U.S. and Canada due to possible choking hazards on Dec. 4, 2013.

    Thousands of baby rattles are being recalled because they could break into small pieces that could be dangerous if swallowed, a company announced this week.

    Manhattan Group is recalling The Quixel baby rattle because the toys’ “colored arches can break, and the resulting small parts can pose a choking hazard for small children,” according to a recall notice.

    More than 8,000 of the recalled rattles were sold in the U.S. and more than 4,000 were sold in Canada after the company received four reports of rattles breaking.

    No injuries have been reported, according to the notice.

    Anyone who purchased a now-recalled rattle can return it to the store where they bought it for a full refund.
