August 21, 2013: HALO SleepSacks Wearable Blankets Recall
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with HALO, announced the recall of HALO SleepSack wearable blankets due to petals detaching from the blankets, posing a choking hazard.
What’s the Deal?
The recalled HALO SleepSack wearable blankets are 100% white cotton with pink-edged ruffles and a pink satin rose embellishment on the front. These sack-shaped wearable blankets have cut-outs for the baby’s arms, a zipper down the center, a sewn bottom and were sold in small and medium sizes. The firm has received six reports of the petals detaching from the blankets including one report of an infant found gagging on a detached petal.
