A few days ago, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced a voluntary recall of 1,400 of their Wooden Fruit Puzzles due to the possibility of the knobs attached to the puzzle fruits, coming loose thus posing a choking hazard to young children. So far no injuries have been reported.
This recall involves wooden puzzles that consist of a board and four pieces representing an orange, a plum, a pear and an apple. Each piece of fruit has a wooden knob. The puzzle board measures 12 x 4.5 x ½ inches. “Grouping Objects – Fruit” and style number10307 can be found on the packaging.
The puzzles were sold in specialty children’s stores nationwide from November 2010 through February 2011 for about $12. If you own one of these puzzles, you should return it to the retail store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers can also contact Kid O Products for instructions on how to mail the product to receive a full refund.
