JA-RU Offers To Replace Parts Of Play To Learn Furniture Set

WASHINGTON, D.C.--In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), JA-RU, Inc., Jacksonville, Florida has announced a replacement program for its "Play to Learn" furniture set Model No. 1411. Three components of the set violate CPSC's small parts regulation.

The "Play To Learn Furniture Set" consists of two play figures and several furniture components made of plastic. JA-RU, Inc. is offering to replace the plastic lounge chair and two play figures because they are small parts which may present a choking hazard to young children. Neither the company nor CPSC has received any reports of ingestion or injury associated with these components.

Approximately 144,000 "Play To Learn Furniture Sets," Model No. 1411 were sold nationwide from January 1987 to the present for $1.59 each.

Consumers should remove the original plastic lounge chair and the plastic boy and girl figures from their children immediately and request replacements by contacting JA-RU, Inc. at (904) 733-9311 or write: JA-RU INC., 4030 Phillips Highway, Jacksonville, Florida 32207.
