Deer Park, NY—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Edushape Ltd. has voluntarily recalled about 13,500 Giant Starbuilder and Giant Stars building sets. The CPSC announced the recall on September 15, 2010.
The recall was initiated after discovering that the plastic knobs can break from the center of the star, which can pose a choking hazard to young children.
The CPSC press release stated, “This recall involves all Giant Starbuilders and Giant Stars building sets. The giant stars measure 5-inches in diameter and are made of opaque plastic. Each star has six knobs protruding from a ring-shaped center. The Giant Starbuilder set contains red, green, yellow and blue stars. The Giant Star building set contains red, green, yellow, blue, orange and pink stars.
