Recall Roundup: Licensee to Kill

Latest News


Recall Roundup: Licensee to Kill

John Deere infant ballcaps

Model affected: Style number JSH721HF and the manufacture date “11/2016” are printed on the care label inside the back of the hats.

Sold: About 15,000 of the defective caps were sold across North America between January and March 2017.

Potential problem: You’d be wrong to assume that the “official” branded merchandise you see out there is actually made by the company, team, or product that’s being advertised on it. And that can lead to problems. Take these “official” John Deere infant caps. The button on the top – the kind of thing a little baby would suck on – can come off, becoming a recall-worthy choking hazard.
