March 3, 2017 -- Hundreds of thousands of baby rattles have been recalled in the United States and Canada due to a possible choking hazard.

A clear plastic disc on the outside of the ball-shaped Kids II Oball Rattle can break and the small beads inside the disc pose a choking hazard to young children, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

It said about 680,000 rattles in the U.S. and 17,000 in Canada are affected by the recall, ABC News reported.

The company has received 42 reports of the plastic disc breaking.
