RECALL: 44,000 Rashti & Rashti Children's Giraffe Blankets Due to Choking Hazard
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Rashti & Rashti, today announced a voluntary recall of about 44,000 Giraffe Security Blankets that were sold exclusively at Target. The balls on top of the giraffe's horns can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
The recall involves the pink "I Love You" security blanket with a giraffe plush head. The blanket measures about 14 inches wide by 14 inches in length. "I Love You" is embroidered on the blanket. Style number Y22230H and "Just One Year a division of Carter's" are sewn into a label on the blanket.
Parents or caregivers should immediately take the recalled blankets away from children and contact Rashti & Rashti toll-free at (888) 594-3730 between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.rashtiandrashti.com for a full refund.
