The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Rocking Horse Depot, of Buckeye, Ariz., announced a voluntary recall of about 1,200 Rocking Horses today.

Hazard: The reins on the rocking horse bridle are long enough to form a loop around a child's head and neck, posing a strangulation hazard to young children.
