RECALL: Priddy "Trucks" Shaker Teether Books Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is issuing a recall on 35,000 Priddy "Trucks" Shaker Teether Books.
Small pieces of the teether can break off, posing a choking hazard to young children. Two reports of children biting off pieces of the teethers were received with no injuries reported.
The recalled cloth teether book entitled "trucks" has a yellow dump truck on the front cover on a blue background. Attached to the top of the book is a yellow rattle with a green teether attached on the right side of the rattle and an orange teether attached to the left side of the rattle.
The book was sold at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores and retailers nationwide from January 2006 to June 2007 for about $7.
Parents are asked to take these toys away from young children and contact St. Martin's Press for instructions on returning the product for a free replacement product.
More information is available at St. Martin's Press phone number (800) 347-9411 (8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. M-F) or visit the firm's Web site at www.priddybooks.com/recall
