me! This brand of yarn can unravel! Have you ever heard of such a thing? It’s just too scary! How irresponsible can a yarn maker be? No wonder the Consumer Product Safety Commission just issued this dire warning:
Name of Product: Bernat Tizzy Yarn
Hazard:Â In finished knit or crochet items, the yarn can unravel or snag and form a loop, posing an entanglement hazard to young children.
Incidents/Injuries:Â Bernat has received two reports of children becoming entangled from unraveling or snagging yarn blankets. No injuries have been reported.
Remedy:Â Consumers should immediately stop using the yarn or finished yarn projects, keep them out of the reach of young children, and contact Bernat for a full refund.
Remember! Children are only safe near items that can never unravel or make a loop. Kindly avoid all necklaces, ponytails, jumbo rubber bands, snakes, shoelaces, licorice whips, octopi, thread, phone cords, scarves, kites, jumpropes, taffy (long form), fishing line, string cheese, and, of course, marionettes. – L.
