The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Edushape, today announced a voluntary recall of about 18,000 Mini Stars building sets because the plastic knobs can break from the center of the stars, posing a choking hazard to young children.
CPSC and Edushape have received two reports of the knobs breaking off from the center of the stars. No injuries have been reported.
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.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled Mini Star building sets away from children and contact Edushape at (800) 404-4744 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.edushape.com for a free replacement set or credit towards another Edushape product of equal or lesser value.
