HALO SleepSacks Wearable Blankets Recalled Due to Choking Hazard
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall of HALO SleepSack Wearable Blankets with Pink Satin Flowers. The petals from the floral embellishment on the blankets can detach, posing a choking hazard to infants.
The recalled HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are 100 percent white cotton with pink-edged ruffles and a pink satin rose embellishment on the front. These sack-shaped wearable blankets have cut-outs for the baby’s arms, a zipper down the center, a sewn bottom and were sold in small and medium sizes. Only SleepSack products with GPU numbers 2701, 2781, 2886, 2887, 3007, 3035 and 3142 printed on a neck label under the primary neck label are included in the recall.
The firm has received six reports of the petals detaching from the blankets including one report of an infant found gagging on a detached petal. Consumers are instructed to immediately stop using the wearable blankets and contact HALO Innovations for a pre-paid envelope containing instructions to remove and return the flower and order a free replacement product.
The SleepSack Wearable Blankets with Pink Satin Flowers were manufactured in China and sold exclusively at Babies R Us and online at www.babiesrus.com from December 2011 through July 2013 for approximately $25.
