Recall Alert! 18,000 Edushape Mini Stars Building Sets Due To Choking Hazard
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.
The sets were sold in small retail stores nationwide, online at Toys R Us.com, Amazon.com and CSN on walmart.com from January 2007 through December 2009 for between $10 and $50.
If you are the owner of these sets please contact Edushape for a free replacement set or credit towards another Edushape product of equal or lesser value. They can be reached at (800) 404-4744 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or you can also visit the firm’s website at www.edushape.com.
