The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling more than 45,000 Sassy and Carter's-brand Hug N' Tug Baby Toys due to a choking hazard.

The toys, aimed at infants, have beads inside the clear plastic sphere at the center of the toys that can be released, posing a choking hazard to young children.

There have been 12 reports of released beads with the Sassy toys. No incidents have been reported with the Carter's-branded toys. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled toys have the face of either a puppy or monkey.

Recalled styles include: Sassy Hug N' Tug Puppy, model #80213; Sassy Hug N' Tug Monkey model #80214 and Carter's-branded Hug N' Tug Monkey, models #61083 that were sold on a blue packaging card and #61540 sold on a grey packaging card.

Sassy-branded toys have "Sassy" written on the back of the character's head,  Carter's-branded toys have "Carter's" written on the back of the character's head.

The recalled Sassy-brand toys were sold between July 2012 and October 2012 at Toys R Us, Target and online retailers such as Amazon.com and Carters.com. The Carter's-branded recalled toys were sold in Carter's retail stores.

Consumers should take the toys away from children and contact Sassy to return the toy for a free replacement at 800-323-6336. You can also visit the company's website at www.sassybaby.com and visit the Product Recall Information link.
