A Keene, N.H.-based company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have voluntarily recalled about 74,000 children’s blankets because of a potential strangulation hazard.
Douglas Co. said the blanket’s satin edge can come loose. The firm has 18 reports of the satin separating from the blanket, though no injuries have been reported.
The recalled children’s blankets are called Lil Snuggler. They are 14 inches square with an animal head sewn in the middle. The company said they were made in China and sold in specialty stores and online from April 2005 through December 2007 for about $12 each.
Style numbers 1327 through 1330 are included in the recall, and include blankets with a cream lamb, cream/tan horse, green frog and pink horse design.
Consumers should contact Douglas Co. at (800) 992-9002, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.douglastoys.com.
