(WBNG Binghamton) A musical shaker instrument is recalled by Woodstock Percussion.
About 9,400 Gripper Shaker musical instruments were sold in mail-order catalogs, websites and retail stores nationwide between August 2010 and March 2011 for about $5.
The handle can detach from the shaker, exposing a rough edge and posing a laceration hazard.
The detached handle also exposes small steel pellets and a plastic plug which pose choking hazards.
The company received one report from a consumer that the handles on two Gripper Shakers detached.
No injuries have been reported.
The shakers are plastic musical instruments, 5.5 inches long, with rounded, egg-shaped tops containing steel pellets and open circular handles.
They come in blue and green and are sold separately.
The marking “B4” is printed on the rounded top of each shaker.
Consumers should stop using the product immediately and contact Woodstock Percussion Inc. to receive a $7 refund.
