CHICAGO (Reuters) - Luxury retailer Tiffany & Co. Inc. has agreed to pay a $262,500 civil penalty to settle claims that it failed to report a hazard with its infant teether rattles, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Wednesday. The commission said Tiffany did not report to the government in a timely manner that the center bar on its Farm Teether Rattle could break, releasing small beads and animal figures and posing a choking and aspiration hazard to babies.
