The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Lakeshore Learning Materials, today announced a voluntary recall of about 2,000 Lakeshore Bristle Builders® for Toddlers because the base of the three animal figures can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The recall includes the Bristle Builders® for Toddlers sets sold with 52 plastic pieces consisting of building pieces and three animal figures. The animal figures include a yellow duck with a purple round base, a brown horse with a blue round base and a pink pig with a round green base. The building pieces include circle, rectangle, square and triangle-shaped pieces in different colors with a green 8” by 4.5” rectangle base. Pieces are covered with plastic bristle pegs which allow all the pieces to connect. Production number EC559597 is printed on the smooth side of the green baseplate.
The toys were sold exclusively at Lakeshore retail stores, Lakeshore Learning Materials’ Early Childhood catalog and online at www.lakeshorelearning.com from December 2013 to April 2014 for about $30.
Consumers should immediately take the three animal figures away from children and contact Lakeshore Learning Materials at (800) 428-4414 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or online at www.lakeshorelearning.com and click on “Product Safety” for more information how to receive a free replacement set of the three animal figures.
