Candlewick Press Recalls Children's Board Books
- 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. Consumers can visit the firm's
web site at www.candlewick.com to receive a free replacement book or contact
Candlewick Press at (800) 883-0009 (or in the 617 and 781 area codes at
(617) 661-3330) between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
