The ACCC have recalled the Big W—Peter Morrissey Nursery Blanket in grey owl print and pink elephant print due to a potential strangulation or entrapment hazard.

The blankets were sold nationally in Big W stores from the 14th August 2014 - 5th May 2015. The blankets can be identified by their product numbers which are Pink Elephant - 8405372, Grey Owl - 8405373.

The defect is that the decorative stitching around the edge of the blanket may come loose allowing the child to become entangled in the yarn.

The hazard is that if the yarn becomes loose it may pose a potential strangulation or entrapment hazard.

Consumers should cease using the blankets immediately and return it to any Big W store for a full refund.
