Infantino, a toy maker, is recalling 191,000 of its toys because a child could potentially choke on one of its parts.

The toymaker has received seven reports of infants choking or gagging on the tail of the Gaga Squeeze & Teethe CoCo the Monkey toy, which is sold exclusively at Target, according to the Associated Press. The monkey-shaped toy is made of soft orange rubber and squeaks.

No injuries have been reported, according to the Associated Press.

The toys, which cost about $13, were sold at Target stores from late 2012 to early 2014.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said consumers should stop using the toy. Consumers are advised to keep the products away from infants and contact Infantino for a replacement toy.
