Carter's® Recalls 600,000 Infant Jumpsuits

Go to the Top Ten List

Infant jumpsuits recalledMorrow, GA (SafetyAlerts) - The William Carter Co. (Carter's®), said today it is voluntarily recalling about 600,000 infant jumpsuits for repair. A ribbon that runs through the zipper pull tab can detach, resulting in a potential choking hazard.

Carter's® received four reports of children detaching the ribbons, putting them in their mouths, and starting to gag or choke. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled infant jumpsuits have a 6-inch long satin ribbon tied through the zipper pull tab. The ribbons are solid in color or have "Carter's" printed on them. Recalled models are either 100 percent cotton interlock jumpsuits with a teddy bear, bunny or puppy embroidery design on the front; or cotton/polyester blend velour jumpsuits with a teddy bear or bunny embroidery design on the front. The jumpsuits were sold in sizes Small (0-3 months), Medium (3-6 months), and Large (6-9 months).

Outlet, department and specialty stores nationwide sold these jumpsuits from May 2000 through December 2000 for $14 to $20.

Consumers should immediately remove and discard the ribbon. The garment then can be worn without the ribbon. For more information, consumers should call Carter's toll-free at (888) 339-2129 anytime or visit the company's website here.
