Random House Has Recalled Children's Book

New York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Random House Inc. has recalled about 39,000 copies of Monsters In The Closet children's board books. The snap that secures the book could detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

CPSC and Random House have not received any reports of injuries involving this book. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The board books are constructed of heavy cardboard with Monsters Inc. cartoon characters on each page. The title "MONSTERS IN THE CLOSET" is printed with orange letters highlighted in yellow on the front cover of the books. The books have a hole at the top of the back cover to allow them to hang on a door knob. The books have been printed in English and Spanish languages. "Made in China" is printed on the back of the book.

Book, specialty stores and online retailers sold these books nationwide from October 2001 through January 2002 for about $8.
