Hachette Book Group has announced a recall of roughly 70,000 children's books titled Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3, and Red, Green, Blue, I Love You.
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.
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.
The recalled children's books were sold at Barnes & Noble, online from June 2013 to August 2013.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled books away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
