Recall Alert: Carter’s One-Piece Footies With ZippersAlice Gomstyn
Concerns about a choking hazard have prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to issue a recall of eight styles of one-piece, footed cotton infant outfits made by Carter’s.
The CPSC announcement states that the zipper pull can detach, “posing a choking hazard to young children,” though no accidents or injuries have been reported.
The zippers on the clothing ran from the foot to the neck. The clothing came in newborn, 3-month, 6-month and 9-month sizes and “Baby B’gosh®,” “Child of Mine® made by Carter’s” or “Just One You® made by Carter’s” is printed on the fabric inside the neck area. The style number can be found on a side seam label in each piece.
OshKosh B’gosh, Walmart and Target stores sold the clothing from December 2012 through January 2013 for between $7 and $20. Baby B’gosh sleepwear was also sold online at <a www.oshkoshbgosh.com.
The clothing can be returned to Carter’s for a full refund. Call Carter’s, Inc. toll-free at (888) 282-4674 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.Carters.com.
