The attorneys at Levin & Perconti just blogged about a product recall affecting children – the children’s hoodie recall – and unfortunately, now we have to blog about another product recall affecting children. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC), in cooperation with a book company, has issued a voluntary product recall on “Monday the Bullfrog Plush Books.” The books have been recalled due to choking hazard for children. The Monday the Bullfrog Plush Book product – which is manufactured in China – sold about 142,000 at retail stores across the country to consumers. Anyone who has purchased the book is advised to stop using the book immediately.
The product recall has been issued because the plastic eye on the frog can become detached and may pose a choking hazard to young children. Three product liability instances have occurred where the piece of plastic came off of the product; luckily, no personal injuries have been reported yet. The books were sold from January 2006 through November 2009, and the ISBN numbers (which are printed inside the mouth of the bullfrog) are: 10:1416912313 and 13:9781416912316.
If you have this recalled product, immediately place the product out of a child’s reach and contact Simon & Schuster, the book company, for a free replacement product. For more information, contact Simon & Schuster at (800) 732-9531 between 7:30 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday central standard time or visit the company’s website.
