Here is the latest on the Minnesota company Kahn Enterprises: They are now recalling 35 Beeni Baby hats with straps that hold a pacifier in a harness, a federal watchdog agency said. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the hats pose a risk of asphyxiation, and they are on the forefront of gathering more facts and information for parents of babies and toddlers. Here is a direct quote from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:
"A baby can spit up during use, posing an asphyxiation hazard," the regulator said in a statement.
The hats were distributed by Kahn Enterprises of Mendota Heights, Minnesota, and sold through the Beeni Baby Web site from January 2009 through May 2011 for about $25 bucks each. So this is a fairly recent safety notice recall for kids and toddlers. Thankfully, no injuries whatsoever have been reported to any federal agency. Also, all of the baby hats were sold in sizes for infants in a variety of colors/styles. They each have two straps meant to hold a pacifier to a baby's mouth. Child product consumers were advised to stop using the hats and contact Kahn Enterprises for a full refund as soon as possible!
