Toys R Us, Walmart and other major retailers are recalling toy building sets are because they pose a safety risk for children, according to news reports.
Edushape Ltd. of Deer Park, N.Y., are recalling mini stars building sets, which were sold at Toys R Us.com, Walmart.com, Amazon, and other retail stores nationwide.
The recall was announced to address plastic knobs can break from the center of the stars, posing a choking hazard to young children. About 1,800 toys are being recalled.
So far, two incidents of the knobs breaking have occurred. No injuries have been connected with the recall.
As a Charleston personal injury lawyer , I urge consumers to stop using the recalled products and contact Edushape Ltd. for a free replacement set or credit toward another Edushape product of equal or lesser value at 800-404-4744 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at www.edushape.com . Parents need to be aware of toy recalls like this one to ensure their child is staying safe. I hope this toy can be recalled before any injuries occur.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a recalled product, contact a personal injury attorney in Charleston.
