Infant Girls' Garment and Shoes
Philadelphia, PA (SafetyAlerts)
Lad Apparel has recalled about 52,000 infant girls' garments and sandals.
Small, decorative items on the garments can detach, posing a choking hazard
to young children.
Good Lad has received three reports of incidents involving the decorative
items. A child swallowed a decorative ladybug and two others began to choke
on decorative flowers. There have been no reports of injury.
This recall involves three separate garment sets. Two of the garment sets
include a newborn and infant dress with sandals. The other includes an
infant capri set with sandals. The dresses were sold in either, red and
yellow or chambray. Both have decorative items like ladybugs and flowers
attached. The capri sets were sold in lime, coral, yellow and purple with
flower attachments around the neckline and on the sandals. The Good Lad logo
is printed on a label inside of the garment, along with the words, "Good Lad
of Philadelphia." The garments were made for ages 3 to 24 months.
Department stores sold the infant garments nationwide from January 2002
through April 2002 for about $15.
Consumers should stop using these garments and sandals immediately.
Consumers should return the garments to the store where purchased to receive
a refund. For more information, consumers should contact the company
