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