Hachette Book Group Recalls Children's Books Due To Choking and Laceration Hazards

Hachette Book Group, Inc., based in New York, NY has issued a recall on two of its children’s books. Two titles are included: Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3, ISBN: 978-0-316-13354-8, has five colored cylindrical wooden beads with printed hearts on the rod; and, Red, Green, Blue, I Love You, ISBN: 978-0-316-13353-1, has five colored circular wooden beads on the metal rod. The reason given for the recall is a risk for the metal bar keeping the beads in place to potentially detach and free to beads to become a choking hazard and also the possibility of laceration from the sharp edge of the bar. Retailers include: Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and by other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8, parents are advised to immediately take the book away from children and return it to the location it was purchased for a full refund. While no injuries have been reported at this time, roughly 70,000 units are estimated to currently be in circulation. You may contact the manufacturer at: Hachette Book Group at (888) 965-5802 from 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.hachettebookrecall.com.
