Baby hats recalled due to “choking hazard”
Joe Fresh baby hats are being recalled due to a “choking hazard for children”, Health Canada announces.
The recalled products were sold from coast to coast, from January to June 2019. They are sun hats in different colors and size patterns 0 to 12 months and 12 to 24 months .
The problem that forces the authorities to disseminate this opinion is at the level of the tape that allows to attach the hat. This ribbon can come off the hat, “posing a choking hazard to children,” according to Health Canada.
On the hat label, there is a serial number that starts with BGS9C or BBS9C and ends with a five-digit series ranging from 49,001 to 49,028.
More than 64,000 hats of these models have been sold across the country at businesses owned by Loblaws. In Ontario, these include the banners Real Canadian Superstore, Independent and Shoppers Drug Mart, while in Quebec, it is mainly about Maxi, Provigo and Pharmaprix.
If you have purchased one of these hats, Health Canada recommends that you immediately stop using them. You will receive a full refund from Loblaws in-store. You can inquire by contacting Joe Fresh Customer Service at 1-855-322-2522 or on the company’s website .
