Health Canada has announced a recall involving two children’s books: Count My Kisses, 1, 2, 3 and Red, Green, Blue, I Love You.

The metal rod onto which the beeds are threaded can detach, releasing the small parts. The loose beads pose a choking hazard, and the broken bar a laceration hazard.

The affected books are sold online and at bookstores across Canada and the US — June to August 2013.

If you have these books:
Remove them from children’s reach and return to place of purchase for full refund. For more info, contact Hachette Book Group: 1-888-965-5802.
