St. Martin's Press, LLC, of New York, N.Y., in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Priddy "Trucks" Shaker Teether Books. Bits and pieces of the teether portion of the book can break off, posing a choking hazard. There have been two reports of children biting off pieces of the teethers, but luckily neither child was injured.

These books, titled, simply, "trucks", are made of cloth and have a yellow dump truck on a blue background on the front cover. At the top of the book is a yellow rattle with a green teether attached with two teethers -- they look like Mickey Mouse ears -- attached. The books were sold at Barnes & Noble as well as other bookstores and retailers across the country from January 2006 to June 2007 for about $7.

If your child has one of these books, take it away immediately and get in touch with St. Martin's Press to find out how to return it for a free replacement. For more information, contact St. Martin's Press at (800) 347-9411 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
