Creative Expressions has recalled about 43,100 paper party hats. The foil fringe at the bottom of the hat can detach and pose a choking hazard to children.
The recalled blue party hats have "1st" printed on the front and blue fringe glued to the bottom. They are cone-shaped and measure 6.5 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide. The hats were sold at party and discount department stores nationwide from February 2005 to May 2007 for about $4.
Consumers should immediately get rid of the hats and contact Creative Expressions for a full refund. For more information, call Creative Expressions at (800) 428-5017 between 8 A.M. and 4:30 P.M.
