(Meredith) – Toys “R” Us is recalling their Bruin infant wiggle ball toys after discovering the rubber knobs and plastic back can detach, posing a choking hazard to babies.

This recall involves Bruin infant wiggle ball toys also called a giggle ball. The blue ball has textured bumps for gripping and has orange, green and yellow rubber knobs around the ball.

This toy was sold exclusively at Babies “R” Us and Toys “R” Us stores nationwide from June 2016 through January 2017 for about $13.
