http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- More than a third-million children's board book sets made by Random House are being recalled. The company says it's cooperating with federal safety regulators in the recall of the sets, sold in cardboard boxes with plastic snaps.
The concern is the snaps can come loose and pose a choking hazard for small children.
Neither the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission nor the publishing house has received any reports of injuries from the units but the recall is being undertaken because of the possibility of problems.
The sets in the recall include those with the following characters or motifs:
-- MONSTERS TO GO!
-- DISNEY PRINCESS
-- DISNEY PRINCESS COLLECTION 2
-- DISNEY'S WINNIE THE POOH - VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
-- BARBIE - MY BARBIE FUN BOX
Each book set contains four board books inside. Only book sets with plastic snaps are included in the recall. Boxes with metal snaps are not on the list.
Book stores, discounters and on-line retailers sold the units nationwide from the fall of 2002 through January for about $10.
Consumers are asked to cut the lid from the plastic snap boxes and throw away the rest of the box. Send
the lid to: Tri-State, c/o Anthony Armetta, 325 Rabro Dr.., Hauppauge, NY, 11788. A free replacement set
will be sent, along with a refund for the postage used to send in the lid. For more, contact Random House
at (800) 805-8534.
