The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, along with Weeplay Kids LLC, of N.Y., today announced a recall of about 2,630 ED by Ellen DeGeneres coveralls because the bunny applique on the children’s coveralls can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Weeplay has received one report in Canada where the bunny applique detached from the garment, and a young child put it in their mouth. The grandparent removed it before it caused them to choke. No incidents or injuries have been reported in the United States.
This recall involves infant ED by Ellen DeGeneres coveralls with the hat. The pink striped, two-piece, long-sleeve coveralls are 100% cotton. They have a kangaroo pocket and bunny-shaped applique on the left chest, a hat with pompom and snaps in the crotch. Style ED01210 was sold in infant sizes 3M, 6M and 9M; and style ED13210 was sold in 12M, 18M, and 24M. The style number and manufacture date code of August 2017 (08/2017) are printed on the inside garment tag located inside the seam of the garment. “ED by Ellen DeGeneres” and the garment sizes are printed on the inside back of the garment.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coveralls and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
