Product name Baby Rattle with Whistle
Description The Baby Rattle with Whistle is multi-colored plastic, with a handle fashioned of beads and a circle of four bell-shaped noisemakers attached to the handle. The end of the handle is a whistle. The packaging is marked “Made in China” and “Baby Rattle with Whistle.” 
Problem The handle of the rattle is small enough to enter a child’s mouth, and is long enough to reach the back of the throat presenting a choking hazard to infants.. In addition, a metal bell can become separated from the top of the rattle and be ingested by a young child.
