PhotoBRIO of Sweden is recalling about 1,700 BRIO soft hammer rattles sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The wooden rings on the hammer rattles can crack, posing a choking hazard to children.

The firm has received seven reports of the wooden ring cracking. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves BRIO soft hammer baby rattle toys. They have a wooden handle with a white plastic teething ring at one end and a red, yellow, white and green hammer head at the other end.

BRIO is stamped on the hammer head. The rattle is about five inches long.

The rattles, manufactured in China, were sold at Home Goods, Kidding Around, Nordstrom and other specialty toy and mass retailer stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from March 2015, through June 2017, for about $13.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled baby rattles and contact BRIO for instructions on how to receive a full refund or a replacement product of similar value.
