Bernat Yarn Recall
Sorry I posted this as an announcement by accident. My Bad!

I just read in Good Housekeeping: Here's an exact quote:

Product: Bernat Yarn "Fur Out" sold by yarn and craft stores in the US and Canada since April 2004 for $4 to $6 per ball. All 17 "Fur Out" colors are involved in the recall.

Contact: Bernat Yarn 1-800-641-5634

Problem: Garments constructed of this yarnb are dangerously flammable, posing a burn risk to consumers.
Okay, so that said, let's talk about this. A "BURN RISK"??????????????? How about COMBUSTION RISK??????

anyway, Bernat's website is here and Info on the recall is here (from the bernat site) and also here from recalls.org.
