Product Recall: First birthday hats

Filed under: Babies, Holidays, Health & Safety: Babies

If you are planning a birthday party for your one-year-old, you might want to take a look at the party hats. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Creative Expressions have announced a voluntary recall of 1st Birthday Party Hats due to a potential choking hazard. The fringed foil glued around the edges of the hats can detach and if your little one were to confuse it with the cake, he could choke.

About 43,100 of these paper hats were sold nationally at party and discount stores from February 2005 to May 2007 for about $4.

There have been no reports of any incidents involving the hats, but consumers are advised to stop using them immediately. For more information and to arrange for a full refund, contact Creative Expressions at (800) 428-5017 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
