Gymboree Recalls Children's Fleece Pants

Childrens fleece pants recalledBurlingame, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Gymboree Corp. (Gymboree®) is recalling about 125,000 children's fleece pants. The cord locks on the pants can break off, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Gymboree has received one report of a cord lock that broke off, and was found in a child's mouth. The child's parent was present and removed the lock from the child's mouth. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled pants have blue, gray, red, or green pant legs, with stitching around the knees. The pants have a gray elastic waistband and black elastic drawcord that hold up the children's pants. The drawcord is secured in place with two plastic cord locks. A label on the back pocket says "Gymboree," and the care label inside the pants says "Made in Indonesia" and "2000 Gymboree." The fleece pants were sold in sizes 0-3T.

Gymboree's website and stores nationwide sold these pants from September 2000 through February 2001 for about $15.

Consumers should take these pants away from children immediately and return them to any Gymboree store for a full refund. For more information, call Gymboree toll-free at (800) 222-7758 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
