Shopko Stores Inc. Recalls Peek-A-Babe Baby Garments

Green Bay, WI (SafetyAlerts) - Shopko Stores Inc. of Green Bay is recalling approximately 9,800 Peek-A-Babe baby garments. The rose-shaped buttons on these garments can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Stores have received one report of a button found in a child's mouth. No injuries were reported.

The garments are one-piece coveralls, and two-piece, babydoll-style top and legging sets, made of 100 percent cotton garments and sold in sizes 0-3M to 24M.  The writing on the collar labels includes, "MADE IN CHINA" and "Peek-A-Babe."

Shopko stores nationwide sold these garments from June 1999 through October 1999 for between $8 and $15.

The tops of the coveralls are made of plush, peach-colored knit fabric, with cream-colored collars and sleeve edges. The coverall tops have three cream-colored, rose-shaped buttons attached to the center front, from the neck to the waist, and are embroidered with a cream-colored rose.

The bottoms of the coveralls have eight snaps at the crotch, and are printed with peach- and purple-colored roses, and peach-colored dots, on a cream-colored knit fabric.

The babydoll tops are made of plush, cream-colored knit fabric, with peach-colored collars and sleeve edges.
