RECALL: 587,000 children's toys recalled due to choking hazard

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

Parents, take note - more than 587,000 children's toys are being recalled because of a wind-up attachment that could pose a choking hazard.

Thursday, Kids Preferred Toy Company recalled their line of musical wind-up toys. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the metal post or handle of the device can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The toy was sold at Carter's, Target, and Walmart stores nationwide and online.
