Hachette Book Group recalls 70,000 “Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3” and “ReNo injuries have been reported. For more information, go the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Websited, Green, Blue, I Love You” books in the U.S. and Canada because they pose choking and laceration hazards. 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.
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.
The books were sold at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, and other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8. Consumers can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
