CONSUMER ALERT: Teething toy sold at Target recalled

By  | 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WEAU) -- A California company is recalling nearly 191,000 teething toys that were sold at Target.

Infantino of San Diego, CA is recalling its "Go Gaga Squeeze" and "Teethe Coco the Monkey" toys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall this week. It's because the tail of the monkey can become a choking hazard for young children. The company received seven reports of infants choking or gagging on the monkey's tail. No injuries have been reported.

The toys were sold at Target and online between December 2012 and January 2014 for about $13. If you have one, take it away from your infant and contact Infantino at (888) 808-3111 to receive a free replacement toy.
