Children's Plush Books Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

Book publisher Simon & Schuster has recalled about 142,000 Monday the Bullfrog Plush Books. The plastic eye on the frog can detach, which may pose a choking hazard to young children.

Simon & Schuster has received reports of three plastic eyes that detached after use and one unit that was packaged with a detached eye. No injuries have been reported.

Monday the Bullfrog is a plush puppet bullfrog with a board book attached to the frog's mouth. It was sold in clear plastic packaging, and the book is marked with ISBN numbers 10: 1416912312 and 13: 9781416912316 printed inside the mouth of the bullfrog.

The recalled books were sold at bookstores and retailers nationwide and online from January 2006 through November 2009 for about $18.

Consumers should immediately place the product out of a child's reach and contact Simon & Schuster for a free replacement product.
