CONSHOHOCKEN, Penn. (WTNH)  –  IKEA has recalled a drum set because of a choking hazard involving the drum sticks.

According to IKEA the rubber ball on the drumsticks of the Lattjo Tongue Drums and Lattjo Drumstick sticks sets can detach or be unscrewed.   However at this time no incidents have been reported in the United States but six incidents have been reported in Germany, Denmark, Spain, and the Netherlands.

IKEA says the sets should immediately be taken away from children and then returned to IKEA for a refund.

According to the company about 2,000 drums and 1,300 drumstick sets are involved in the recall.   The products were sold at IKEA stores or on the IKEA website from November through December 2015.
