What is the problem?
The toys' plastic wires can detach from the hubs due to insufficient adhesive, allowing the beads to slide off. The loose beads pose a choking hazard to young children.
How can I tell if I own this product?
This recall involves the Beado hand-held beaded play toy with model number 1501 and date code 02910 04323A. The product measures six inches in diameter and is composed of four blue plastic "hubs", six white plastic "wires" and twelve multi-colored beads that slide along the wires. The model number and date code are printed on the bottom of the packaging and the date code is also inside of the blue hubs. Beados that have a date code different than 02910, or have a date code of 02910 and an inspection sticker on the bottom of the packaging and a black mark by the date code inside the blue hub, are not included in this recall.
These items were sold new+ at Specialty toy and juvenile retailers from March 2010 through May 2010 for about $12.
