Baby Leg Warmers and Socks Recalled for Choking Hazard

BabyLegs just issued a recall of 4,500 of its <"">Baby Leg Warmers and Socks, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC), just announced.

The agencies are advising consumers to stop using the recalled products immediately and to follow the directions below and note that it is illegal to resell or to attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The recalled Baby Leg Warmers and Socks, which were manufactured in China, were distributed by BabyUnited LLC, doing business as (dba) BabyLegs of Seattle, Washington.

The leg warmers and socks have a heart appliqué that can detach, posing a choking hazard to small children. To date, the firm has received one report of an infant choking on the heart-shaped appliqué. Her mother was able to dislodge the appliqué from her throat. No medical attention was required.

This recall involves only those BabyLegs brand leg warmers, ankle-high socks, and knee-high socks adorned with a heart-shaped appliqué. The recalled products are pink, white, or purple cable knit socks and leg warmers and were sold for about $11 per pair at and independent retailers from August 2010 to November 2010.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately take the recalled socks and leg warmers away from children. Consumers can remove and discard the heart appliqué to eliminate the hazard or contact BabyLegs to receive a full refund or a coupon to be redeemed on the BabyLegs website.
