CPSC And Dollar Tree Announce Activity Set Recall

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Dollar Tree Stores Inc. of Norfolk, Va., is recalling approximately 23,000 stationery activity sets. The sets include a plastic cutter with a metal blade. Consumers could be cut if the cutter's handle is inadvertently compressed, and the blade is exposed unexpectedly.

The plastic cutters have a black button and a handle in a variety of colors such as gray, red, orange, yellow, green, etc. They measure 6.25 inches long (6.5 inches long when the blade is extended), .5 inch wide, and .5 inch thick. The cutters were sold as part of an activity set, which also included a clear plastic tape dispenser and two yellow, fine-tipped highlighters. The activity sets were blister-packed on green, violet, or blue cardboard labeled in part, "Item #STNY 85 5TPJ3 ... UPC #0 4038801113 7 ... Made in Indonesia ..."

Dollar Tree Stores in the Eastern, Midwestern, and Southern United States sold the activity sets from July to August 1995 for $1 each.

Consumers should stop using the cutter immediately and return it to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, consumers should call Dollar Tree Stores at (800) 876-8077 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.
