A wind-up musical toy made by Kids Preferred is being recalled due to a choking hazard.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission says the metal post or handle of the wind-up mechanism can detach from the toy, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The recall announcement was made on Thursday, Oct. 19.

"This recall involves Carter’s®, Child of Mine®, Guess How Much I Love You® and Just One You® brands of wind-up musical plush toys," the CPSC said.

The toys were sold in a variety of animal characters and colors.

CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using the recalled toys, take them away from young children and contact Kids Preferred for a free replacement toy.

So far, there have been six reports of parts from the wind-up handle detaching from the toy but no injuries have been reported.

According to the CPSC, the toys were sold at Carter's, Target, Walmart and other stores nationwide and online from January 2016 through August 2017.
