Carter’s Recalls 200,000+ Infant Clothing with Zippers

Time to check the baby clothes, my friends! Today (April 11, 2013) the CPSC has announced that Carter’s has recalled over 200,000 one-piece, footed cotton clothing for infants due to a choking hazard.

The problem is that the zipper pull can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. It’s important to note that no injuries have been reported.

How Many Have Been Recalled?

About 218,000
