Hachette Book Group is recalling approximately 70,000 of its 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.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The books involved in the recall were sold at Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and other retailers from June 2013 – August 2013 for about $8.
Customers are advised to contact the company for a full refund at (888) 965-5802 or online at www.hachettebookrecall.com or www.hachettebookgroup.com.
