Children's WeePlay Bodysuits Recalled Over Choking Hazard

Posted on

Children rely on their parents to keep them safe, and in turn, parents rely on companies to make products that don’t pose a threat to their babies.

WeePlay Kids has announced a recall involving Carter’s Watch the Wear bodysuits and Sleep ‘n Play one-pieces.  The items, which come in multiple colors, were sold at various stores across the country between November 2010 and August 2011.  They retailed for between $4 and $9.

The problem with the item concerns tiny snaps that are used to close up the clothing.  These snaps can detach from the bodysuits and one-pieces, creating a choking hazard to the young children for whom the clothes are designed for.

Thankfully, no injuries have occurred in conjunction with this product, but the company has received word of more than 30 incidents in which the snaps have fallen off of the item.  People who purchased the product are asked to cease putting them on their children and return the clothing for a free replacement.

As a personal injury attorney in Ventura, I hate to see defective products of any kind, but a recall on children’s products is particularly frightening.  Children should be safe in the knowledge that their parents are looking out for them, and in turn, parents should know that a Los Angeles personal injury attorney is watching their backs and bringing them the latest safety news.
