The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with BabyLegs, yesterday announced a voluntary recall of about 4,500 Baby leg warmers and socks with heart appliqués. It has been found that these appliqués can detach, posing a choking hazard to small children.
The firm has received one report of an infant choking on the heart-shaped appliqué. Her mother was able to dislodge the appliqué from her throat. No medical attention was required.
This recall involves only those BabyLegs brand leg warmers, ankle-high socks and knee-high socks adorned with a heart-shape appliqué. The recalled products are pink, white or purple cable knit socks and leg warmers.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled socks and leg warmers away from children. Consumers can remove and discard the heart appliqué to eliminate the hazard or contact BabyLegs to receive a full refund or a coupon to be redeemed on the BabyLegs website.
For additional information, contact BabyLegs toll-free at (888) 791-6098 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.babylegs.com
