Protecting children from strong UV rays is every parents’ concern. But for many Canadian parents, the hat on their baby’s head may actually be a safety risk.
As a result, Health Canada has issued a recall on Joe Fresh brand baby sun hats because of a potential choking hazard. The loop fastener on the hats, which come in a variety of colours and patterns, may detach and thus pose a safety risk.
The recall affects roughly 64,000 hats that were sold across the country between January and June of this year. The hats were made in China and distributed under the Joe Fresh brand by Loblaw Companies Ltd. at its stores, including Shoppers Drug Mart.
Health Canada says the company hasn’t received any reports of injuries, but advises people to stop using the products immediately. Please take them back to any Loblaw-based outlet for a full refund.
