Guidecraft Recalls Toy Due to Choking Hazard
Guidecraft Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall for their toy product due to a choking hazard, according to recent news reports.
About 760 of the Twist and Sort Toys are subject to recall. The pegs on the posts of the toy have proven to detach, which can be a choking hazard around young children. No injuries have been reported thus far.
The toy is wooden with a square base. Four posts are included that exist so twelve colored pieces can be slipped over them. The number 712 is printed on the bottom of the product.
The item was sold at toy stores and gift shops all over the United States, as well as from catalogs and online from September 2009 to November 2010. The product retailed for about $20.
If you have one of these toys in your possession, you can contact Guidecraft to arrange a replacement.
