Hazard identified

The recalled bodysuits do not meet the requirements under Canadian law related to small parts on a product for young children less than three years of age.

It was determined by laboratory testing that a part of the decal may peel and separate from the bodysuit, creating a rigid small part that can be swallowed by young children, posing a choking hazard to those children.

Small objects in a child’s environment present choking, ingestion and inhalation hazards. Clothing used by a child less than three years of age should not have small or separable hard components, or small parts that detach during reasonable foreseeable use of the garment.

Walmart Canada has received one reported incident without injury.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these bodysuits.

Approximately 6,183 units of the recalled bodysuits were sold by Walmart Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled bodysuits were sold from March 25th, 2013 to June 15th, 2013.
