The hat has a drawstring, which poses a strangulation hazard to young children.
This recall involves about 500 toddler and youth nylon bucket hats. The hat is a nylon bucket-shape hat with mesh sides. There are nylon fabric strips on the side of the hat that snap up. The front of the hat has a zipper pocket with a silver boat-anchor applique with embroidered text below. The hat adjusts with a bungee drawstring sewn in the crown of the hat. A label sewn into the back inside of the hat reads "Bass Pro Shops."
Bass Pro Shops retail stores nationwide from February 2007 through June 2007 for about $8.
