Sterling Recalled Cloth Books Due To Strangulation Hazard. Sterling Publishing Co. Inc. has issued a recall of 15,000 eebee’s “Have a Ball” Adventures Cloth Books due to a strangulation hazard. The cloth books subject to this recall were sold in book and toy stores nationwide, and by internet retailers from June 2008 through June 2009 for about $15.
The recalled eebee’s “Have a Ball” Adventure cloth book is an interactive activity book. It has a small cloth ball attached to a string which children use to complete activities in the book. The books are intended for children ages 9 to 36 months. ISBN 13:978-1-4027-5771-6 is located on a white tag attached to the book. Other eebee’s Adventures cloth books are not included in this recall.
String Attaching The Ball Can Entangled
According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the string attaching the ball to the book can become entangled in the basketball hoop element, posing a strangulation hazard to young children.
Consumers should immediately take the book away from children, and return the product to the place of purchase for a refund. For more information, contact Sterling Publishing Co.
