The company has received one report of the wooden ring breaking. No injuries have been reported. But consumers are advised to immediately take the toy away from young children.

The plush brown elephant toy has white crinkle ears. There is a green hanging loop on top of the elephant toy's head so that it can be attached to a stroller or crib. There is a mini mirror on the elephant toy's stomach, while a teether and a wooden ring hangs below its body.

The item number is 212520. It can be found on the small white tag sewn into the bottom of the toy.

The product sold for about $10 at specialty toy and baby stores nationwide and online at www.manhattantoy.com from February 2014 through May 2015. Consumers can return the product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund.
