RECALL:Proddy Trucks Teether Books Due to Choking Hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the St. Martin's Press of New York, announced a voluntary recall about 35,000 Priddy "Trucks" Shaker Teether Books. Small pieces of the teether can break off, posing a choking hazard to young children. St. Martin's Press has received two reports of children biting off pieces of the teethers. No injuries reported. The recalled cloth teether book entitled "trucks" has a yellow dump truck on the front cover on a blue background. Attached to the top of the book is a yellow rattle with a green teether attached on the right side of the rattle and an orange teether attached to the left side of the rattle. They were sold at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores and retailers nationwide from January 2006 to June 2007 for about $7 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take these toys away from young children and contact St. Martin's Press for instructions on returning the product for a free replacement product.
