CPSC, Kindermusik International Announce Recall of "Fiddlesticks"
PRODUCT: Fiddlesticks - Kindermusik International, of Browns Summit, N.C., is

rhythm instruments designed for use in the Kindermusik classroom and at
home. The recalled instrument is 7" long, 1" in diameter, and is made
of wood. It is hollowed out in the middle. Steel balls are inserted
into the middle of the instrument to create a shaker sound and the ends
are capped with wooden plugs. They are primarily sold as part of a
music instructional kit. Kindermusik educators sold the music kits,
including the Fiddlesticks, in the United States and Canada from
December 2002 through January 2003.

allowing ball bearings to spill from the inside of the sticks. Both the
caps and the ball bearings pose a potential choking hazard to young
INCIDENTS/INJURIES: None reported.
