Announce Recall Children's Play Tables to Replace Mallets WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Shelcore Inc., of Somerset, N.J., is voluntarily recalling about 124,000 "Stand-Up 'N Play Tables" to replace the xylophone mallets. The mallet that comes as part of this table set can be lodged into the throats of young children, posing a choking hazard. Shelcore received a report of the mallet being jammed into the throat of a 13-month old boy after he fell while teething on the ball end of the mallet. Lacerations in the throat resulted when an adult had to forcibly remove the mallet to prevent choking. The "Stand-Up 'N Play Table" measures 14 inches long, 14 inches wide and 13 inches high. The multi-colored play table includes a telephone, clicking dial, spinner, push-button squeaker, rolling ball, spinning gears, xylophone and mallet, three colorful shapes, and a shape sorter. The tray of the table is white, and the legs are red with yellow caps at the base. Writing on the box reads, "Ages 9-36 Months," and "Encourages Child to Pull-Up and Stand." Toy stores nationwide sold these play tables from March 1996 through March 1999 for between $18 and $20. Consumers should immediately throw the recalled mallets in the trash, and call Shelcore for a free replacement mallet. For more information, call Shelcore at (800) 777-0453 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or write to Shelcore Inc., 347 Elizabeth Ave., Somerset, NJ 08873-1101.
