Poundland is recalling the above Witches Hat with Hair, which has been found to fall below our standards as they do not meet the Toy Safety flammability standard and therefore pose a risk if exposed to a naked flame. The hats affected have been on sale since August 2013 at Poundland stores, Poundland Online and Dealz stores.
If you have purchased one of these products (listed above) or have any concerns regarding any other Poundland Halloween faux hair product you have purchased previously, please return it to your nearest store for a full refund.
