children's books are being recalled because a detached metal bar can
expose a sharp edge posing a laceration hazard, according to a release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Hachette Book Group is recalling “Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3” and “Red, Green, Blue, I Love You.” The
books include a metal rod holding small beads on the cover of books.
The rod can detach and release small parts that present a choking
hazard, according the CPCS, and the detached bar can pose a laceration
hazard. About 70,000 copies of the books were sold at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com and other retailers from June to August 2013 for about $8. If you bought the book, you can return it to Hachette Book Group for a full refund. Call (888) 965-5802 between 8 a.m.to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
