Gap recalls baby swimsuits due to strangulation hazard
03
May '10
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following products. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Baby swimsuits
Units: About 6,500 in the U.S. and about 480 in Canada
Retailer: Gap Inc., of San Francisco, Calif.

Hazard: The swimsuits have halter straps that were manufactured too short causing the plastic ring located at the neck of the swimsuit to press against the child's throat and obstruct the airway. This poses a strangulation hazard to the child.

Incidents/Injuries: The firm has received two consumer complaints. No injuries have been reported.

Description: The baby swimsuits were sold in two styles: number 706260 is blue and white and number 700452 is red and white. The style number can be found on the label located on the swimsuit. Both swimsuits were sold in infant sizes up to 24 months and are made of a synthetic knit stretch fabric of polyester and spandex. The straps are made of the same material as the body.

Sold at: The babyGap, GapKids, Gap, Gap Outlet stores nationwide and online from February 2010 through April 2010 for between $17 and $20.

Manufactured in: Indonesia and China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled swimsuits away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Contact Gap to return by mail if purchased online.
