Name of product:

Children’s books titled “Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3” and “Red, Green, Blue, I Love You”

Hazard:

A metal rod holding small beads on the cover of books can detach and release small parts that present a choking hazard. A detached metal bar can expose a sharp edge posing a laceration hazard.

Remedy:

Consumers should immediately take the recalled books away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Sold at:

Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and by other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8.

The board-shaped children’s books have cut out covers that serve as a handle and  include an embedded bar in the handle with beads for children to play with. “Ages 3+” is printed on the back covers and the ISBN numbers are also on the back covers near the bar code. 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,
