Pottery Barn Kids Announces Recall of About 81,000 Chloe, Sophie & Audrey Soft Dolls

Pottery Barn Kids has announced a recall of about 81,000 Chloe, Sophie and Audrey soft dolls in the U.S. and 1,300 in Canada in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada.  The hair on the Chloe and Sophie dolls may contain loops that are large enough to fit around a child’s head and neck, and the headband on the Audrey doll, if loosened, can form a loop that fits around a child’s head and neck. The firm has received five reports of dolls with looped hair, including one report in which a loop of the Chloe doll’s hair was found around the neck of a 21-month old child. The child was not injured.

This recall involves soft dolls sold under the names Audrey, Chloe and Sophie. The dolls measure about 17 inches high and have hair made of yarn. Audrey’s hair is black, Chloe’s hair is dark brown and Sophie’s hair is blonde. The dolls are part of Pottery Barn Kids’ Girl Doll Collection. The doll’s name can be found on a tag sewn onto her bottom. The dolls were sold exclusively at Pottery Barn Kids stores nationwide, online at www.potterybarnkids.com, and through Pottery Barn Kids catalogs from July 2006 to April 2011 for about $40. They were made in China.
