Children's books recalled for choking hazard

WASHINGTON - December 9, 2009

The books are "Monday the Bullfrog Plush Books."

Authorities say the plastic eye on the frog can detach, which may pose a choking hazard to young children.

Simon & Schuster has received reports of three plastic eyes that detached after use and one unit that was packaged with a detached eye. No injuries have been reported.

The books were sold at bookstores and retailers nationwide and online from January 2006 through November 2009 for about $18.

Consumers should immediately place the product out of a child's reach and contact Simon & Schuster for a free replacement product.

For more information, call Simon & Schuster at (800) 732-9531 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the company's Web site at http://kids.simonandschuster.com
