The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Simon & Schuster Inc, today announced a voluntary recall of about 142,000 Monday the Bullfrog Plush Books because 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.
Consumers should immediately place the product out of a child’s reach and contact Simon & Schuster at (800) 732-9531 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the company’s Web site at http://kids.simonandschuster.com for a free replacement product.
