A large recall of Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboards has been initiated, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced.

About 95,000 Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboards have been recalled in the United States; another 4,300 were recalled in Canada.

The Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboards were manufactured in China by Rainbow Force Plastic Products, of China; were imported by Battat Inc., of Plattsburgh, New York; and were sold at Target stores, nationwide, and by various online retailers from March 2010 to March 2011. The defective Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboards retailed for about $16.

The magnetic tip of the drawing pen can dislodge from the pen, posing a choking hazard to children. To date, Battat has received 19 reports of the magnetic tip separating from the pen. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves the Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboard, which has a white plastic writing surface that is bordered by either a red or a brown plastic frame. The defective Sketchboard also has a bean bag-type backing.

The sketch board is also embellished with four animal shapes across the top: A rabbit, a dog, a cat, and a duck. The multi-colored magnetic pen is affixed to the front of the sketchpad and the model number BX1026 (for the red-framed sketchboard) or BX1027 (for the brown-framed sketchboard) can be found on a paper wrapper that comes with the product at the time of purchase.

The firm advises consumers to immediately take recalled Toulouse-LapTrec Magnetic Sketchboards away from children and to contact Battat to receive a free replacement sketchboard. Battat can be reached, toll-free, at 1.866.665.5524 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), Monday through Friday, or at Battat’s website at www.battatco.com.

PW WAS FANTASTIC WHILE HANDLING MY WTC CASE. SHELLEY DAVIS WAS SUPERB, SHE MANAGED THE CASE WITH VERY LITTLE INPUT FROM ME.

IF ALL GOES WELL THEY SHOULD HAVE AN AWARD FOR YOU WITHIN 18 MONTHS. I AM VERY HAPPY THAT I CHOSE PW.

My husband lost his parents within 2 years. His father most recently and we are distraught over his care prior to passing. We decided to call Parker Waichman, and were greeted by Joanna. We sat and explained our story, and literally felt like we were sitting with family. Joanna went out of her way to make sure we understood every single detail, and were comfortable with our choices. Lawyers can be intimidating, but we never once felt that way. We are very comfortable with our choice to use them and would recommend anyone to use their services. (Joanna even went out of her way to hand deliver the most delicious olive oil, not sold in the U.S to our home!!)
