Vera Bradley is recalling about 98,000 units combined of its bear ring rattles and bunny stuffed toys because of a choking hazard.
The pom-pom tail can detach from the body of the bear rattle and the bunny, posing a choking hazard to young children, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's website.
Vera Bradley said it has received two reports that the pom-pom tail detached from the product. No injuries have been reported.
The products were sold at Vera Bradley retail stores, department stores and specialty gift shops and online at verabradley.com and other online stores from September 2012 to January 2014 for between $12 and $19.
The products are made of cotton and fleece. The company says the bear ring rattle has a white teddy bear head, arms attached to an O-shaped body with a green, blue, brown and pink crisscross pattern design rattle.
The bear ring rattle measures about 4.25 inches in diameter. The bunny is 10 inches tall from the top of its head to the bottom of its foot and was sold in three printed patterns.
The "Bunny in Lilli Bell" has green vines with pink and orange flowers on the body, limbs and the back of the ears. Vera Bradley said the "Bunny in Lola" has a crisscross geometric pattern on the arms, legs and ears of the white headed bunny with a floral print body. The "Bunny in Tutti Frutti" has a green with a pink and yellow floral printed pattern fabric covering whole body.
All of the recalled rattles and bunnies have a white pom-pom tail on the back of the item. The company said the name Vera Bradley is marked on a tag attached to each item, along with the following serial numbers:

According to the CPSC's website, consumers should immediately take the products away from young children, stop using these recalled products and return them to Vera Bradley for a full refund.
