November Recall Round-Up

November's Recall Round-Up begins with a search of your child's toy box. That's where you may find, products that could harm your child.

Advantage Publishers Group is recalling "Amazing Baby, Listen and Play Activity Books". The hub of the pink dial, embedded in the back cover of the book can come of easily, posing a choking hazard. The books were sold nationwide from May through October of this year for $16.

Children who love to draw pictures on the sidewalk with chalk may be at risk for lead poisoning. That's because certain packages of sidewalk chalk showed high levels of lead during testing. The chalk in question was sold at Target stores under the "Double Dipp'n Fun" label. The five piece set comes in a triangular shaped package and has multi-layers of green, yellow, red and blue. You can bring the chalk to any Target store for a refund.

Now, onto a recall that could affect the way you plan on cooking your holiday dinner. The Metal Ware corporation is recalling 47,000 deep fryers. The problem is the mesh filter in the cover of the fryer may allow the unit to boil over and burn the user. The recall involves Nesco Brand, Stainless Steel Deep Fryers with a black plastic top and handles on each side. Affected model numbers are df-250t, df-1250t and df-1250tl.

Now onto the highway where your car may be under recall. Honda is recalling more than 650,000 sedans, mini-vans and suvs. The cars have a defect that allow drivers to remove the key from an ignition when it isn't in park. The national highway traffic safety administration says the defect has caused four injuries and 28 crashes. Apparently, drivers assumed the vehicles were in park because they were able to remove the key, but the car rolled away.

Ford is recalling more than 250,000 Windstar mini-vans. The vehicle's third row bench seat failed a crash test, coming loose during the crash. The recall affects 2001 to 2003 Windstar mini-vans. If you own any of these vehicles, you will receive a recall notice in the mail.

That wraps up this month's Recall Round-up. For NewsChannel 11's Safety Solutions, I'm Sharon Maines.
