Hachette Book Group Recalls Children's Books

A metal rod holding small beads on the cover of books can detach and release small parts that present a choking hazard.
Hachette Book Group Recalls about 70,000 Children's Books.
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. 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.
They were sold Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and by other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled books away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Consumer Contact: 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
