Ouchy! Metal fragments in these pillows

Costco pillowsSomewhere in China, at some point in time, there was a mechanical breakdown in the manufacturing process at a factory, and metal fragments made their way into these good-looking pillows.

Then, the pillows were packed up, loaded into freight containers, and shipped to America, where 120,000 of them were sold at various Costco stores between February and June of this year.

If you have one or some of these pillows, you should know the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall of them today. To prevent abrasions to you and your family and visitors who might touch and cuddle with these pillows, you should take them back to Costco for a full refund. (The pillows, that is, not your family and guests.)

Here’s the full announcement and all recalls (so far) in July.
