In early December, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning on Toddler Girl’s Hat and Mitten Sets sold by Meijer Inc., of Grand Rapids, Mich. Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately. The concern is that the magnets in the hat can detach and fall out, posing a choking and aspiration hazard to young children. Magnets found by young children can be swallowed or aspirated. If more than one magnet is swallowed, the magnets can attract each other and cause intestinal perforations or blockages, which can be fatal.
The recall affects sets that were sold in Meijer stores in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky from August 2008 to October 2008. The sets were made in China.
For more information, consumers can contact Meijer at (800) 927-8699 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.aquariusltd.com, or e-mail the firm at email@example.com.
