Descrição do Defeito: Safety Pin Rattle Recalled by Fiber-Craft Materials Corp. NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   December 20, 1988   Release # 88-115 Safety Pin Rattle Recalled as Potential Choking Hazard WASHINGTON -- A Safety Pin Rattle is being voluntarily recalled by Fiber-Craft Materials Corp. of Niles, Illinois, because it presents a possible choking hazard to infants and young children. Sold in craft stores, the rattles were marketed as decorations. Made of blue, pink or yellow plastic and shaped like a safety pin, the model #4642 rattle is approximately four inches long with noise-making beads inside. The rattle is small enough to fit into an infant's mouth, and long enough to reach the back of the throat and possibly cause choking. Consumers who purchased the recalled Safety Pin Rattles should immediately take them away from infants and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund of the purchase price. For additional information, call Fiber-Craft at l-312-647-1140. The U.S. Customs Service identified the hazardous rattle at the Port of Chicago during "Operation Toyland," a joint surveillance program with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
