The pom-poms on the rattles and booties can detach, posing a choking hazard.  No injuries have been reported yet, but Midwest-CBK has received a report of a pom-pom detaching from the wrist rattle.

The recall involves Monkeez & Friends™ wrist rattles and baby booties.  The wrist rattles and the booties are made of knitted yarn and have a monkey head and a pom-pom attached. Both come in multiple color combinations.  The rattles and booties were sold nationwide at gift stores, rug stores, décor outlets, and variety stores from June 2009 through March 2011.  The wrist rattles sold for about $5 and the booties sold for about $13.

The items should immediately be taken away from children and can be returned to the store where they were purchased or to Midwest-CBK for a full refund.  If you are unable to return the product to the store where it was purchased, contact Midwest-CBK to receive a prepaid shipping label.  For additional information, contact Midwest-CBK toll-free at (800) 394-4225 between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT, Monday – Friday.
