What is the problem?

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.

How can I tell if I own this product?

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 covers and the ISBN numbers are also on the back covers 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.

This product was also recalled in Canada. Health Canada's press release is available at http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/35527r-eng.php

These items were sold new+ at Barnes & Noble, online at Amazon.com and by other booksellers and retailers from June 2013 to August 2013 for about $8.
