Cloth Books Recalled Due to Strangulation Hazard
August 20, 2009 - About 15,000 eebee's "Have a Ball" Adventures Cloth Books have been recalled due to strangulation hazard. A string attaching a ball to the book can become entangled in the basketball hoop element, posing a strangulation hazard to young children.
This interactive activity book has a small cloth ball attached to a string which children use to complete activities in the book. The books are intended for children ages 9 to 36 months. ISBN 13:978-1-4027-5771-6 is located on a white tag attached to the book. Other eebee's Adventures cloth books are not included in this recall. Units were sold at book and toy stores nationwide and Internet retailers from June 2008 through June 2009 for about $15.
Consumers should immediately take the book away from children, and return the product to the place of purchase for a refund. For more information, contact Sterling Publishing Co. Inc. at (800) 367-9692 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers can also email the firm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
