Teething toys should help your baby get through a painful stage of infancy — not threaten to choke the child. That’s why Battat recalled about 61,210 B. toys Light-Up Firefly Teether Glowy Chews, a Firefly Frank variety sold only at Target in the United States or Hudson’s Bay in Canada.

The exact problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The plastic wings can detach from the body of the teether, posing a choking hazard to young children.”

And this isn’t an idle concern. The notice says Battat has received, “14 reports of the wings detaching or pieces of the wing breaking off, including one report of a child choking on a broken piece of the wing.”

Battat is swallowing the money on this one, offering refunds. Just take the toy back to the Target or Hudson’s Bay for a full refund. If you need to mail the teether or have questions about the recall, reach out to Battat at 844-963-2479, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern time or by emailing recalls@battatco.com.
