WASHINGTON (AP) -- Pottery Barn Kids is recalling about 92,000 chamois blankets because the decorative stitching can come loose, posing a strangulation hazard to a young child, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Monday.
The San Francisco, Calif., company has received four reports of the stitching coming loose, but no reports of injury, the CPSC said.
The recall includes children's chamois blankets made of 100 percent polyester. The blankets were sold in yellow, pink, blue and green, and the reverse side of all the blankets are white. Decorative yarn in a coordinating color is stitched around the blanket's edge. The blanket measures 30 inches wide by 40 inches long and is labeled for stroller use. A label on the blanket reads "Pottery Barn Kids" and "Made in Korea."
The blankets, made in Korea, were sold in Pottery Barn Kids' stores nationwide, through the catalog, and on the company's Web site from December 2002 through December 2004 for about $30.
Consumers can remove the decorative stitching or contact Pottery Barn Kids at 877-800-9720 between 7 a.m. and 12 a.m. EST for information on how to receive a refund or replacement.
