Dolls recalled by Pottery Barn Kids due to strangulation hazard

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a voluntary recall for some children's toys.

According to the CPSC website "Chloe, Sophie, and Audrey soft dolls" have been recalled because some of the strands of hair could contain a loop that could get wrapped around a child's throat or head.

The report shows that about 81,000 dolls have been sold in the United States and 1,300 in Canada. The importer is the Pottery Barn Kids division of Williams-Sonoma Inc. of San Francisco.

There was one report of the hair being wrapped around a 21-month old child's neck, however, the child was not injured.
