Price/Costco Recalls Last Years's Reindeer Christmas Stocking

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), PriceCostco of Kirkland, Wash., is recalling about 17,000 reindeer Christmas stockings. During CPSC testing, a small gold colored bead on the reindeer's antlers pulled off, presenting a potential choking hazard to young children.

PriceCostco originally sold the stockings, item number 74503 (COSTCO) and item number 79750 (Price Club), from September to December 1993, and CPSC and PriceCostco recalled them in December 1993. CPSC and PriceCostco are re-announcing this recall as consumers begin to take these stockings out of storage for the upcoming holiday season.

The 20-inch Christmas stocking, which sold for $9.99, is made of a soft red, green, and white furry material with a 4-inch white border on top and the words "Merry Christmas" embroidered on the front just below a pocket that holds a sewn-in stuffed white reindeer. The 10-inch reindeer has a green fur nose and green fur hooves, feet, and antlers with a gold colored bead sewn on each antler. The ears, a bow tie on the reindeer, and the bottom of the feet are red. A tag sewn in the seam of the stocking reads, in part, "Chrisha, Playful Plush, Made in Indonesia."

If the beads have not already been removed, CPSC and PriceCostco urge consumers to either remove and discard the beads from the reindeer's antlers or return the stocking to the store where purchased for a full refund.

Neither CPSC, the manufacturer Chrisha Creation Limited of Greenville, R.I., nor PriceCostco is aware of any injuries involving these stockings. This voluntary recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

For more information about this recall, call Chrisha Creations at (401) 949-4328 or your local Price Club or Costco Wholesale Warehouse, or call PriceCostco at (800) 774-2678.
