Ambler Mountain knit hats recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Ambler Mountain Works knitted hats due to a choking hazard.
Knitted attachments to the hat, such as an octopus figure or decorative eyeballs on the Erwin Beanie cap can come loose, creating a choking hazard the CPSC said in a statement.
About 370 of the hats were sold in ski shops and sports stores from September 2008 through November 2008 for about $30.
The hats were imported from Nepal by Ambler Mountain Works of Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
Consumers were advised to return the hats to Ambler Mountain for a free replacement or to cut off the attachments and dispose of them.
Consumers can call 888-267-6968 for information.
