Manhattan Toy is recalling its activity toys due to a choking hazard.

The colored plastic tubes on the product can become brittle and break into small pieces, posing a choking hazard to infants.

Consumers are asked to immediately take the recalled toys away from infants and return them to the store where purchased, or contact Manhattan Toy for a full refund.

The toys were sold nationwide and online from May 2015-September 2016.

The company says about 14,400 units were sold in total. The firm has received four reports of plastic tubes breaking, but no injuries have been reported.

The Winkel Colorburst teething and activity toy has multi-color plastic tubing inserted into a plastic cube with  rattle beads inside. The model number and lot code are printed on the center of the cube and on the hang-tag and product packaging near the UPC code.   Only activity balls with the following lot codes are included in this recall: 206880 DH; 206880 EH; 206880 HH; 206871 EH.
