(WBNG Binghamton) Discovery Toys has recalled almost 3,000 of its Toddler Talk Toy Mobile Phones because of a choking risk.

The clear plastic antenna can break off, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Discovery Toys has received reports of three incidents in which the toy telephone's antenna broke off.

A child was found chewing the toy phone's antenna but it was removed by his mother.

The recall involves a red and blue plastic battery-operated toy mobile phone with a small, clear antenna, buttons numbered "1, 2, 3, 4 and Play," a screen with a boy's face and the words "hello! hola! bonjour!"

Only model number 1231 is involved in this recall.

The model number is printed on the toy's packaging.

"Discovery Toys" is stamped into the red plastic on the back of the toy.

The toy phones were sold by Discovery Toys Educational Consultants nationwide from September 2010 through November 2010.

Take the toy away from your young children and contract Discovery Toys for instructions on how to return them for a replacement toy.
