UNDATED (NBC) -- A choking hazard has prompted the recall of more than half a million plastic Oball Rattles.

The clear plastic disc on the outside of the toy Oball Rattle can break, releasing the small beads. The firm Kids II has received 42 such reports, including two reports of beads found in children's mouths and three reports of gagging.

These rattles were sold at Target, Wal-Mart and other retailers nationwide as well as online through several websites from Jan. 2016 through last month.

Consumers can contact Kids II for a full refund.
