Midwest-CBK is recalling more than 22,000 pairs of baby rattle socks due to a choking hazard.

The rattle socks have an animal or character sewn onto the toe area.

Some of the characters include a snowman, reindeer, whale, flamingo, tiger or shark. The socks were sold in children’s sizes 0 to 12 months.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the small ornaments can detach from the socks, posing a choking hazard to young children. The company has received one incident of the rattle detaching.

Midwest-CBK has received one report of the ornament detaching from the socks but no injuries have been reported.

The socks were sold in gift stores nationwide from October 2017 through December 2018. The socks sold for about $10.

If you have the socks, you should take them away from children immediately and contact Midwest-CBK for a full refund.

You can call Midwest-CBK at 800-394-4225 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or email for more information.
