Deer Park, NY — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Edushape Ltd., have voluntarily recalled Mini Stars building sets for choking hazards the toy poses to young children. The CPSC announced the product recall on July 7, 2011.
The nationwide product recall was issued after discovering that the plastic knobs can break from the center of the stars, which poses a choking hazard to young children.
“This recall involves Mini Stars building sets. The Mini Stars measure three inches in diameter and are made of opaque plastic. Each star has six circular knobs protruding from a ring-shaped center. Edushape only makes Mini Stars in red, green, yellow or blue colors which are included in this recall. The Mini Stars do not have any markings, codes or logos stamped into the plastic. They were sold in sets of 12, 24, 36, 48 and 72 pieces,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers have been advised to contact Edushape for a free replacement set or credit towards another Edushape product of equal or lesser value.
If you need further information about the product recall, consumers can contact Edushape at (800) 404-4744 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit www.edushape.com.
