RECALL: Organic baby teething rattle recalled over choking fears

A popular range of organic teething rattles have been recalled over fears they may pose a choking hazard.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued a recall of the Noc Noc Miniature Organic Wooden Teething Rattle, Organic Wooden Rattle and Organic Ring Stacker on Thursday, stating that the products did not meet the mandatory safety standard.

“The rattles and teethers are of shape and size smaller than permitted dimensions. The items do not comply with the mandatory safety standard for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age,” the recall notice reads.
