About 61,000 of the infant teethers sold at Target locations in the United States are included in this recall. About 210 teethers were also sold in Canada. 

The toy company, Battat, already received 14 reports of the wings detaching or pieces of the wing breaking off. In one reported instance, a child choked on a broken piece of the wing, CPSC said. 

Battat issued a notice on its website urging consumers to "immediately take the recalled teethers away from young children and return them to any Target store" for a refund even if they don't have a receipt. 

The item can be returned to any Target store or mailed to Battat.
