Manhattan Group is recalling approximately 12,400 Manhattan Toy Quixel baby rattles. The colored arches on the rattle can break, creating a small part which poses a choking hazard to small children.

The recalled plastic rattles have four colored arches (red, orange, green and blue) with sliding beads on each of the arches. The arches are held together by a single string of red, white and blue elastic. The rattle arches measure about 5 inches in diameter. The rattle was sold with or without a box. 'Manhattan Toy' is printed on one of the arches.

The Quixel baby rattles affected by this recall were sold at specialty toy and baby stores in the United States and Canada, as well as online from September 2011 through October 2013 for about $15.

Consumers should immediately take these rattles away from young children and return it to the store where purchased for a full refund.
