Choking Hazard Causes American Eagle To Recall Toddler Girl’s Pants And Shorts
Clasp on the clothing can become detached and cause a choking hazard
According to Norwalkplus.com, clothing manufacturer American Eagle Outfitters has voluntarily recalled 1,200 pants and shorts for toddler girls due to the possibility of a choking hazard.
According to the Department of Consumer Protection, the Pittsburgh, PA-based clothing company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of several different girls’ clothing items.
Included in the recall were a variety of styles of jeans, pants, and shorts that have a metal clasp mounted at the waistline of the items. It is possible that the clasp can become detached from the waistline of the item and pose a choking hazard for toddler girls. Consumers have been urged to stop dressing their children in these items immediately and return them to the retailer.
American Eagle sold the items through www.77kids.com and their retail stores during the months of July and August 2010. The items were sold for between $24 and $34. Sizes involved in the recall were for 12 to 18 months up to 5 years. According to Norwalkplus.com, an online magazine, the following styles and garments are involved:
- #3007 – Skinny Cords;
- #3012 – Boyfriend Vintage Wash;
- #3013 – Cut-Off Bermuda shorts;
- #3029 – Flare Vintage Blue Wash;
- #3030 – Flare LT Wash;
- #3034 – Flare Rip and Repair;
