The Land of Nod has issued a recall of 550 Octo-Rattles because the fabric discs on the tentacles of the octopus can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

This recall involves rattles sold individually or as part of a gift bag set. They were sold at The Land of Nod stores nationwide and online from September 2015 through April 2016.

The knit fabric rattles are yellow and shaped like an octopus with multi-colored felt discs sewn into the tentacles. The rattles measure about nine inches tall, four inches wide, and three inches deep and can attach to strollers or activity gyms. The Land of Nod, Morton Grove, IL 60053, 951-3072461, Made in India, and SKU 502882 are printed on a label attached to the underside of the rattle.

Although the firm has received five reports of the rattle's fabric discs detaching, no injuries have been reported to date.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled rattles away from children and contact The Land of Nod to receive a full refund.

Consumers may contact the company at (800) 933-9904 for more information.
