Product recall: Baby rattle poses choking risk

The Baby Clementoni Blooming Flower Senses Rattle is sold via Smyths Toys

Smyths Toys has issued a recall of the Baby Clementoni Blooming Flower Senses Rattle because of a potential choking hazard.

The manufacturer has identified that the white decoration on the front of the toy may detach.

Due to the danger this could pose, Smyths Toys has issued a product recall.

The rattle has been on sale since June 2020.

Read on to find out what you should do with your rattle if you have one.

What should you do if you own this rattle?

It's important that you stop using the rattle immediately.

Smyths Toys has requested that you return the rattle to your local Smyths Toys Superstore for a full refund. You can find your nearest store via their Store Finder.

They have also asked for a screenshot or copy of your receipt.

If you no longer have a copy of the receipt and paid by card, a bank statement should suffice as proof of purchase.

If Smyths Toys are unable to issue a refund as you paid by cash and no longer have the receipt, you should go directly to the manufacturer of the product, Clementoni.

With the manufacturer, it shouldn't matter if you have proof of purchase. As long as you have the product in your possession, the manufacturer should arrange to retrieve, replace or fix it.
