In coordination with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, Scholastic has voluntarily recalled the Shake Look Touch book, a plush book with touch and feel components for young children. The pom poms on the book may detach and could pose a choking hazard to young children. Scholastic has received two reports of the pom poms detaching with no injuries reported. Only books with the pom poms are included in this recall.

The book should be immediately removed from the reach of young children and the pom poms cut off the book. The book may be used after removing and disposing of the pom poms.
To participate in the recall and receive a $10 gift card, register online at www.recallrtr.com/slt, submit a picture of the book and removed pom poms, and affirm that the removed pom poms will be disposed of in the trash.
