On February 20, the CPSC announced a recall on 191,000 Go Gaga Squeeze and Teethe Coco the Monkey Teethers by Infantino. The teethers, sold exclusively at Target stores, were recalled due to the fact that they pose a choking hazard to young children because the tail of the monkey detaches.
Here’s what you need to know:
The recalled monkey is made of soft orange rubber, measures 4.5 inches tall and 5 inches long. “Infantino” is written on the back toward the rear of the toy and the model number 206-647 is written on the inside of the rear left leg. So far, CPSC has received seven reports of infants choking or gagging on the monkey’s tail. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.
What to do if you own the recalled model:
Stop using it immediately and keep out of the reach of young children. You can contact Infantino for a free replacement toy by telephone at (888) 808-3111 or online at Infantino.com and clicking on “Recall Information” on the site’s homepage.
