Toys & Games
The Danger:
The plastic rod can come loose, allowing the colored counting beads to slide off of the toy and posing a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves about 68,000 toy castles that have counting beads, four play figures, and several different shapes and letters that fit into holes in the castle. "infantino" is printed in the lower right-hand corner of the side with the letters. The recall only includes castles with the following date codes:
  • 5349
  • 6087
  • 6132
  • 0906
Castles with other date codes, no date code, or with a plastic rod attached with a metal screw are not included in this recall. The date code is stamped on the underside of the blue top and can be viewed through the top square shape or top "A" letter openings.
Sold At:
Wal-Mart, Target, Marshalls, Meijers, and other specialty toy retailers nationwide from January 2006 through May 2007 for about $12.
