Battat Magnetic Sketchboards Recalled

Date:
November 2, 2011
Category:
Toys & Games
Company/Brand:
Battat Inc.
The Danger:
The magnetic tip of the drawing pen can dislodge from the pen, posing a choking hazard to children. Battat has received 19 reports of the magnetic tip separating from the pen. No injuries have been reported.
Description:
About 95,000 Toulouse-LapTrec magnetic sketchboards are being recalled in the United States and 4,300 in Canada. The sketchboard has a white plastic writing surface, bordered by either a red or brown plastic frame, and a bean bag type backing. It has four animal shapes across the top -- a rabbit, dog, cat, and duck. The multicolored magnetic pen is affixed to the front of the sketchpad. The model number BX1026 (red frame) or BX1027 (brown frame) can be found on a paper wrapper that comes with the product at the time it was purchased.
Sold At:
Target and Barnes & Noble stores nationwide and by various online retailers from March 2010 to March 2011 for about $16.
What To Do:
Immediately take recalled sketchboards away from children and contact Battat to receive a free replacement sketchboard. For additional information, contact Battat toll-free at (866) 665-5524 between 8:30 A.M. and 4:30 P.M. ET Monday through Friday, or visit Battat's website at www.battatco.com.
