About 70,000 Children’s books titled “Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3” and “Red, Green, Blue, I Love You” have been recalled by Hachette Book Group, Inc., New York, N.Y. 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 cover and the ISBN number is also on the back cover 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.
The books were sold at 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.
