US: Paramount recalls youth hats on strangulation hazard
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Paramount Apparel International, has announced the voluntary recall of about 500 toddler and youth nylon bucket hats.
The hat, manufactured in China, has a drawstring, posing a strangulation hazard to young children.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The hats were sold exclusively at Bass Pro Shops retail stores in the US from February 2007 to June 2007, for about US$8.
Consumers should stop using the recalled hats immediately and contact Paramount Apparel to receive a refund or replacement item, the company said.
