- NEW - Wilkinsons: Children's Wild West Hat. There has been an issue of the cord presenting a risk of strangulation, so the hat has been recalled. You are advised to return them to stores, or remover the cord if you wish to continue using them. The hat is still for sale both online and in stores, but from the picture it looks as though the cord is no longer included.
