Mini Stars Children’s Toy Building Sets Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

Submitted by on July 7, 2011 – 12:21 pmNo Comment

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Edushape Ltd. issued a recall of approximately 18,000 Mini Stars children’s toy building sets on July 7, 2011. The sets contain small parts that can break and pose a choking hazard.

The stars are three inches in diameter, plastic, and have circular knobs protruding from a ring-shaped center. The CPSC and Edushape have received two reports of the knobs breaking off from the center. Fortunately, thus far no injuries have been reported.
