Wedgewood U.S. is issuing a voluntary recall for its Peter Rabbit decorative baby rattle. The ball bearings inside each side of the rattle can be released, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The silver-plated giftware is shaped like a baby rattle, but is intended to be used as decoration only. The company has received two reports of ball bearings releasing from the decorative giftware baby rattle. No injuries have been reported.

It measures about 4 ½ inches long and 2 inches wide. A Peter Rabbit figure and hop hop hop underneath are embossed on one end cap and hop little rabbit over the Peter Rabbit figure is embossed on the other end cap.

The company sold about 670 of the items.

Rattles could be purchased at Bloomingdales, Macy's, and Wedgewood Outlets and other department stores nationwide, and from online retailers, from April 2015 through December 2015 for between $75 and $95.

Consumers should immediately stop using the decorative rattles and take them away from young children and contact Wedgewood for a full refund.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Wedgewood at (877) 892-9973.
