WASHINGTON, D.C. - Step2® is recalling about 21,000 of its Basic Rhythms Drum™ toys because they pose a choking hazard. The plastic clips used to attach the drumsticks to the drum can break. The small broken pieces present a choking to young children.
This recall involves Step2® Basic Rhythm Drums™ intended for preschool age children. The toy drum is sold with two drumsticks that can be stored in clips on the side of the drum. A red "Step2®" logo in printed on the side of the drum.
The recalled toys have been sold at Toys "R" Us, Burlington Coat Factory and other retail stores nationwide from August 2009 through March 2010 for between $10 and $15.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled toy from children and contact Step2 to request a replacement toy.
