CPSC, Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI) Announce Recall of Children's Baseball Caps

PRODUCT: Children's Baseball Caps - Recreational Equipment Inc. of Kent, Wash., is voluntarily recalling about 1,600 REI Kids Super Caps. The caps are sold in three colors (New Denim, Pumpkin or Lichen) with the letters "REI" embroidered on the back left side of the cap and a decorative compass embroidered on the front center of the cap. There is a size-adjustment cord, located on the rear of the cap that has two parts; a black toggle and a black snap-on plastic pull. The caps were sold nationwide at retail stores, mail order catalogs and on the Internet. They were sold from February 20, 2001 through June 26, 2001 for $10.00.

PROBLEM: The adjustment cords, located on the rear of the hats, use a snap-on plastic pull. The snap-on plastic pull could separate from the cord, posing a choking hazard to young children.

INCIDENTS/INJURIES: REI Product Quality Assurance (PQA) received one report of a parent finding the snap-on plastic pull in the mouth of her two-year old son. No injuries have been reported.
