SGC Admin: Attention Knitters and Crocheters….. we received the following in our inbox recently and wanted to help get the word out… please share with any knitters and crocheter’s you may know who enjoy making things for little ones… 🙂 thanks… 🙂
- PRODUCT RECALL: Bernat Tizzy
Dear Bernat Tizzy Consumer,
All knitted or crocheted garments or blankets can come unraveled or pulled apart if they are “snagged”. The potential for these snags can vary depending on the tension of the stitch or the construction of the yarn.
We believe that the risk of snags with Tizzy may be higher than normal. In finished knit or crochet items, the yarn can unravel or snag and form a loop, posing an entanglement hazard to young children. Since this yarn is marketed towards babies we have decided to voluntarily recall this product from the marketplace and discontinue its sale.
Since all yarn is prone to a certain level of risk in this regard, this was a very difficult decision. However, the safety of children is our first concern. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this Voluntary Recall may cause you.
