Usborne recalls batch of That’s not my monkey…

From The Bookseller:

Usborne is recalling a batch of its That’s not my monkey… books over fears of mould due to a problem with warehouse cartons.

The firm announced it was recalling copies with the batch number 01849/29 and ISBN 9780746093368, sold between July and August this year.

In a statement online, the company said: “This is due to a humidity problem found with some cartons at the warehouse containing this UK batch, causing the potential safety concern of mould forming.

“While not all copies are affected, we are recalling this delivery to ensure customers are not potentially put at risk.”

PG says books growing moldy in a warehouse is an appropriate metaphor for a great many things in traditional publishing.

  1. Heh, was there really any mold – or was this a very cheap ad campaign to remind readers that the book is out there? 😉
