Voluntary recall of 44,000 pink baby blankets

It seems to be recall week this week. After informing you about recalls such as MotherCare Buggies, Toy Dart Guns and Army Combat Helmets, a fresh recall has been issued for 44,000 pink giraffe security blankets.

As reported from ChicagoTribune, this is a voluntary recall and has been issued by both the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Rashti & Rashti – the importers of the blankets.

The blankets are sold exclusively at Target stores, but have been recalled over fears that they could cause a choking hazard. The CPSC released the following quote today: “The balls on top of the giraffe’s horns can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.”

At the moment, no injures have been reported over the potential problem. If you own one of these blankets, you are advised to contact Rashti & Rashti for a full refund.
