Candlewick Press Recalls Children's Board Books
 

Cambridge, MA., (SafetyAlerts) - Candlewick Press is recalling about 78,670 "Bunny My Honey" children's board books printed in Italy. The plastic lamination on the board book may peel off, posing a choking hazard for young children.

Candlewick Press has not received any reports of injuries or incidents involving these board books. The recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The board books have thick, cardboard-like pages covered with a thin plastic laminate. The title "Bunny My Honey" is printed on the front cover of the books. Only books with "Printed in Italy" on the back cover are included in this recall. Books printed in Mexico are not included in this recall.

Bookstores, children's specialty stores and gift shops nationwide sold these books from December 2000 through September 2001 for about $7.

Consumers should take the recalled "Bunny My Honey" board books away from young children immediately and discard them.
