Liquidating Corp. Issues Public Warning That "Wood Toy Puzzle Train" May Be Hazardous To Your Children

WASHINGTON, DC -- Liquidating Corp., formerly B and E Sales Company, Inc. (hereinafter: Liquidating Corp.), of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, currently under Chapter 11 bankrupcy reorganization, is issuing this public notice to warn consumers about 6,800 wooden puzzle train toys, Item No. 790494.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has determined that the trains contain small parts which may present a potential choking hazard if used by children under three years of age.

Each puzzle train consists of one wooden engine car and two wooden boxcars. All three roll on red wheels. The engine has a pull cord which measures approximately 10-1/2 inches to 11 inches long. The set has brightly painted wooden triangles and cylinders which can be fitted into the wooden boxcars of the train.

Although neither the CPSC nor Liquidating Corp. have received any reports of injury involving these wooden puzzle train toys, consumers should take the toys away from young children and discard them. These toys were distributed nationwide to retail toy outlets since July of 1988 and sold for approximately $5.00.

The U.S. Customs Service identified the potentially hazardous puzzle train at the Part of Los Angeles, CA during the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission - U.S. Customs joint surveillance program.
