CPSC, Catton Brothers Corp. Announce Recall of Disney Babies Romper Sets for Boys and Girls

CPSC, Catton Brothers Corp. Announce Recall of Disney Babies Romper Sets for Boys and GirlsWASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Catton Brothers Corp. of New York, N.Y., is recalling about 13,200 Disney Babies romper sets for boys and girls. Some of the romper's crotch snaps were improperly attached, exposing a sharp prong. The exposed prong could cause injury to infants.

CPSC and Catton Brothers Corp. are not aware of any injuries involving these rompers. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The Disney Babies romper sets consist of a denim romper with an embroidered Baby Minnie or Baby Mickey and a denim hat with a Baby Minnie or Baby Mickey patch. They are available for boys (style no. 1169) and girls (style no. 1168) in sizes 0 to 6 months and 6 to 9 months. The rompers have two sewn-in labels. One label displays the Disney Babies logo. The other label reads in part, "CATTON BROS. CORP...Style #1168 or 1169...100% Cotton...Made in Bangladesh." Wording on this label is written in English and Spanish.

Department and discount stores nationwide sold the romper sets from October 1996 through February 1997 for about $10 to $14. The Disney Store did not sell the rompers. Consumers should stop using the rompers immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Catton Brothers Corp. at (800) 357-6343.

Disney Babies denim rompers that are made in the Philippines are not involved in this recall.
