Here is a biggie!
The CPSC issued a recall today involving 18,000 Edushape Mini Stars Building Sets. The recall is due to 2 reports of the plastic knobs breaking from the center of the stars, thus posing a serious choking hazard to young children. This is actually the second incident in the past 12 months for Edushape as additional star building sets were recalled back in September 2010.
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.
