“Count my Kisses, 1, 2, 3” is among the children’s books being recalled due to a metal bar that can expose a sharp edge and potentially cut the reader.

Air pistols that could potentially explode at high temperatures are being recalled.

Faulty wire socket insulation is being blamed for the recall of ceiling mounted light fixtures that pose a threat of electrical shock.

This science toy could be mistaken by a child for candy, and if ingested, could expand inside the child’s body. The toys do not show up on an X-ray and would need to be removed by surgery.
