April 30, 2009: babyGap Toggle Coat Recall
According to the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Gap Inc., is voluntarily recalling approximately 19,200 babyGap children’s coats in the US (and 3,900 in Canada). Though no incidents or injuries have been reported, the coats have toggle fasteners that could break and detach from the coat, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Do You Own These Coats?
This recall involves three different children’s coat styles with toggles including Rose Toggle Hoodie (style 600298), Pink Duffle Coat (style 600344), and Blue Plaid and Mojave Toggle Coat (style 600942). The coats were sold in infant sizes up to 24 months and are made of cotton, polyester, or polyester/acrylic. The toggles are light tan plastic and about 1 3/4 inches long.
Manufactured in China and Indonesia, the coats were sold at babyGap, GapKids, and Gap Stores nationwide and at www.gap.com from October 2008 through April 2009 for between $20 and $50.
Whom to Contact
Consumers should immediately take the recalled coats away from children and return them to any babyGap, GapKids, or Gap store for a full refund. Consumers who return the coats before August 31, 2009 will also receive a 20 percent off coupon for a regular priced item. Contact Gap to return by mail if purchased online.
