A well-known yarn company is recalling a type of yarn because children can become entangled if the yarn unravels.

Bernat has received two reports of children becoming entangled from unraveling or snagging yarn blankets made with its Tizzy yarn.

About 840,000 skeins in the U.S. and Canada are affected by the recall.

The recall includes all 11 colors of Bernat brand Tizzy Yarn. UPC codes included in the recall are printed under the barcode on the paper sleeve. For a full list of color numbers, color names and UPC codes included in the recall visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.

The yarn was sold at Jo-Ann Stores, Michaels and other craft retail stores nationwide and online from April 2012 through February 2015 for between $4.50 and $5.

Consumers should immediately stop using the yarn or finished yarn projects and contact Bernat for a full refund.
