Paricon, in conjunction with the CPSC, is recalling about 800 Children’s Snow and Sand Castle Kits because the largest plastic castle block maker in the kit can crack at the handle during when being used, which creates sharp edges that pose a laceration hazard to children.
The recall castle kit consists of three red plastic block makers. Only the largest block maker in the set is included in the recall. The largest block maker measures about 19 inches in length and 5 inches in width. Smaller block maker blocks and castle kits with the letter “A” on the inside of the large block maker are not included in this recall.
So far no injuries have been reported to Paricon. The castle kits were sold at L.L. Bean retail stores across the country from September 2007 to October 2007.
