Discovery Toys LLC recalled its toy cell phones after three reports of the antenna breaking off, including one in which a mom had to pull the broken piece out of her son's mouth, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Toddler Talk Toy Mobile Phones are recalled both in the United States and Canada because the broken antenna can create a choking risk to small children, the CPSC said. Consumers should take the cell phones away from their children and call Discovery Toys for instructions on getting a new toy -- your choice of either a trio of dump trucks, a caterpillar or puzzles.

The company said the antennae can break off when it hits something and apologized to its customers.
