Lollytogs Ltd. of New York City this week voluntarily recalled more than 10,000 infant overalls in the United States and Canada because of the danger of babies choking on its snaps.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada in a press release announced the recall of the clothing, noting that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
There are about 8,300 of the overall in the United States being recalled, and 2,000 in Canada.
Although no injuries have been reported yet, the overalls have snaps that could come loose and pose a choking hazard to young children.
The recall involves infants’ Carhartt overalls with style numbers GG8500 (100 percent cotton canvas) and GG8501 (100 percent cotton knit).
The overalls, made in India, were sold in brown or red in infant sizes 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 months. The Carhartt logo is sewn on the front of the garment and the style numbers can be found on the sewn-in label hanging from the sleeve.
The overalls were sold at retailers nationwide from February 2010 through July 2010 for about $25.
Consumers should immediately take the overalls away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or store credit.
