Infant Onesies and Rompers Recalled for Choking Hazard

About 450 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Infant Onesies and Rompers have been recalled by Kiwi Industries due to choking hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.

The recalled Infant Onesies and Rompers were manufactured in the U.S.A by Holtrop & McIndoo LLC, which also does business as (DBA) Kiwi Industries, of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The snaps on the defective Infant Onesies and Rompers can detach from the garment, posing a choking hazard to young children. To date, the firm has received two reports of snaps detaching. No injuries have been reported.

The Infant Onesies and Rompers were sold in six combinations of eight colors and prints: Eggplant with kiwi green binding, floral print with eggplant binding, kiwi green with eggplant binding, pacific blue with kiwi green binding, crisscross print, and kiwi green with pacific blue binding. The onesies were sold in sizes 0 to 3 months up to 12 to 18 months. The rompers were sold in sizes 0 to 3 months up to 18 to 24 months. “Kiwi industries” is printed on a tag sewn inside the garment’s collar.

The recalled Onesies and Rompers were sold at children’s specialty stores nationwide from March 2010 through May 2010 for between $24 and $28.

The CPSC is advising consumers to immediately stop using the garments and contact Kiwi Industries for an exchange. The firm will provide a postage-free package for the return of the recalled garment. Kiwi Industries can be reached toll-free at (877) 509-4891 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Mountain Time, Monday through Friday; at the firm’s website at www.kiwiindustries.com; or by email at info@kiwiindustries.com.
