MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Nearly 200,000 infant toys sold at Target are being recalled because they may pose a choking risk.

The Infantino Go Gaga Squeeze & Teethe Coco the Monkey toys were sold at Target stores and online from December 2012 through January for about $13.

The company received seven reports of infants choking or gagging on the monkey's tail. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers have been asked to immediately stop using the toy and contact Infantino to receive a free replacement product.

The back of the recalled monkey is marked "Infantino." The model number 206-647 is stamped on the inside of the back leg. Products with model number 206-949 are not affected.
