The choking risk is due to a mirror at the back of the book which is covered by a protective plastic sheet that can easily be removed. Papp International Inc. has received one report in Canada of the plastic sheet detaching and being found in a child’s mouth, although no injuries were reported.

What should you do?

If you have this product, you should immediately take the recalled books away from children, remove the plastic film covering the mirror at the back of the book and discard it safely into the garbage. For more information, consumers can contact PAPP International Inc. by telephone at 514-725-1515, by email or visit their website.
