November 21, 2007
Category:
Toys & Games
Company/Brand:
Paricon
The Danger:
The largest plastic castle block maker in the kit could crack at the handle during use, creating sharp edges that can pose a laceration hazard to young children.
Description:
This recall involves about 800 snow and sand castle kits. The castle kit consists of three red plastic block makers. Only the largest block maker in the set is included in the recall. The largest block maker measures about 19 inches in length and 5 inches in width. Smaller block maker blocks and castle kits with the letter "A" on the inside of the large block maker are not included in this recall.
Sold At:
L.L.Bean retail stores nationwide, catalogs, and Internet from September 2007 through October 2007 for about $30.
What To Do:
Stop using the large blocks and immediately take these recalled toys away from children. Letters have been sent to each customer with a replacement large castle block maker and a return mailer enclosed. In addition the notice will be posted in L.L.Bean retail stores and on its Web site, and customers can return the kit to any retail store for a replacement. For more information, please contact Paricon at (800) 873-8452 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit L.L. Bean's Web site at www.llbean.com.
