If you have an infant at home, you will want to check your child's teething toys.

The U.S. Consumer Product and Safety Commission is recalling 191,000 teething toys that pose a choking risk to children.

The toy is made by Infantino and called the Go Gaga Squeeze & Teethe CoCo the Monkey. Intended for newborns, it is made of soft orange rubber, squeaks, and is shaped like a monkey. Infantino reported seven infants have choked or gagged on the monkey's tail. No injuries have been reported.

The monkey measures 4.5 inches high and 5 inches long. It has a model number 206-647 marked on the inside of the monkey's rear left leg.

The toys were sold at Target stores between late 2012 and early 2014 for about $13.

If you own this toy, you're advised to keep the product away from your child and contact Infantino for a replacement.

Call Infantino at 888-808-3111 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or go online to infantino.com.
