Baseball fans wearing hats or clothing from the teams they support begin to gather before the game. There are also many children's fans.

However, hazardous substances were detected in children's hats sold in the online malls of official licensed companies linked to the professional sports team's homepage.

Six of the 13 products surveyed by the Consumer Sources.

In five products, formaldehyde, a group 1 carcinogen, exceeded the children's textile product acceptance threshold by 1.2 to 2.3 times.

Mainly from the undershirt and the head covering area of ​​the forehead.

Two products have shown that pH, which indicates the level of acid or alkali, may cause skin irritation outside of safety standards.

These products have been discontinued.

[Han Eun-ju / Korea Consumer Resources Fiber Polymers Team: The company has responded that it will accept voluntary recalls such as refunds or exchanges in response to the recommendations of Korea Consumer Resources.]

The Consumer Source asked the National Institute of Technology and Standards to strengthen the supervision of these professional sports products, and cautioned the use of children as they are more vulnerable to harmful substances than adults.
