Wearable baby blankets recalled due to choking hazard
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A wearable baby blanket called the SleepSack from the company HALO has been recalled due to a choking hazard.
The product, which was sold exclusively at Babies R Us, has a pink floral embellishment on the left chest area. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the petals from the flower can detach and pose a choking hazard to infants.
Halo has received six reports of the petals coming off the SleepSacks. In one instance, an infant was found gagging on a detached petal.
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 CPSC said consumers should immediately stop using this product and contact HALO for pre-paid envelopes containing instructions to remove and return the flower and order a free replacement product.
The SleepSacks were sold at Babies R Us stores and its website from December 2011 through July 2013 for about $25. The products were manufactured in China.
If you bought a SleepSack, contact HALO Innovations at (866) 819-8118.
