Button batteries present a risk of choking, severe internal burn injuries or death to young children if they gain access to the batteries and ingest them.

The product was sold nationally and online between 18 Feb 2022 and 2 Feb 2023

The books do not contain the warning information that is required for products containing button or coin batteries, which may mean consumers are unaware the product contains a button battery.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and store it out of the children’s reach.

For more information, please contact QBD Books in store, via phone, through email or read the relevant warnings online.
