Gund is recalling baby paperboard books with plastic handles designed as baby rattles.

Gund Baby Paperboard Book Recall

March 23, 2010 - Gund recently received three reports from consumers involving paperboard books marketed under the Gund Baby brand. These reports indicated that the styrofoam material used to affix the baby rattle/plastic handle to the binding of the book had become dislodged when chewed or picked at, and could present a choking hazard to infants or young children.

Gund is conducting a voluntary recall of these items in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada. We are asking consumers to return these items.

This voluntary recall involves three miniature paperboard books, each with a plastic handle designed as a baby rattle. Each book is approximately 4.5”H x 7”W (including handle).

Consumers in the U.S. should contact Gund customer service at 1-800-436-3726 to arrange for a return of these items for a replacement item of equal or greater value, which Gund will provide at no charge. Consumers will receive instructions on how to return the items to Gund at no charge.

Consumers in Canada should return these items to the original point of purchase for a full refund.

Please note that no injuries have been reported as a result of this situation. Gund regularly conducts rigorous testing of all of its products before they are sold to consumers, and these recalled items passed all safety standards set forth by the CPSC and Health Canada. Gund is conducting this recall out of an abundance of caution on behalf of our consumers.
