Gap Inc. recently announced a voluntary recall for two children’s swimsuits on April 30. These were manufactured in Indonesia and China, and were released in the US and Canada from February to April, with about 7,000 sold. These swimsuits sold for $17-$20. Although no injuries have been reported, these styles received two complaints from customers of a possible choking hazard. If your child or someone you love have been injured by these Baby Gap Swimsuits, contact our defective product liability attorneys to discuss your case.
BABY GAP SWIMSUIT RECALL FOR CHOKING HAZARD
According to the U.S. Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, both styles have halter tops manufactured too short, causing the plastic ring located at the neck to press against the child’s throat. The style numbers, which can be located on the swimsuit’s label, are 706260 for the blue and white swimsuit, and 700452 for the red and white swimsuit. Those who purchased one of these products are encouraged to return the swimsuits for a full refund.
