The toys' plastic wires can detach from the hubs, due to insufficient adhesive. This allows the beads to slide off. The loose beads pose a choking hazard to young children.
This recall involves about 5,500 Beado handheld beaded play toys with model number 1501 and date code 02910 04323A. The product measures six inches in diameter and is composed of four blue plastic hubs, six white plastic wires, and twelve multi-colored beads that slide along the wires. The model number and date code are printed on the bottom of the packaging, and the date code is also imprinted inside of the blue hubs.
