Meijer recalls toddler hat and mitten sets for safety hazards

About 100 hat and mitten sets for toddlers are being recalled in the U.S. because they pose a safety threat to children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The safety commission warns magnets in the hat can separate, creating a choking danger for children. If more than one magnet is swallowed it might attract another, causing intestinal perforations or blockages. In serious cases, the results can be fatal.
The hat and mitten sets were sold in Meijer stores in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky from August 2008 to October 2008 for about $12 US.
The sets were made in China.
Consumers should take the hats and mittens away from children and return them to the retailer for a refund.
