35,000 books recalled for choking hazard

New York-based St. Martin's Press is recalling about 35,000 Priddy Trucks Shaker Teether books from the marketplace, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The cloth books, which are topped with a teether, were sold in U.S. stores from January 2006 to June 2007 for about $7 US each.

The CPSC warned that small pieces on the books may come loose, creating a choking hazard. The company has learned of two incidents in which children bit off pieces of the teethers. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should take the product away from children and contact the company for replacements.
