Empire Silver, in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling around 1,000 sterling silver teething rings due to a choking hazard.
The silver ball that holds the ring in place can separate and release the beads inside. This poses a choking and aspiration hazard to infants.
The teething rings were sold in three different styles. The first had a single ring with a ball, another had a single ring with a heart and ball, and the last has three rings with a ball. the ring has small beads inside that rattle and the ball is holding together and between the ring.
The recalled product was sold at independent jewelry, gift, specialty and department stores across the U.S in November 2007. So far the company has not recieved any reports of injury.
