WAHSINGTON, D.C. - Gap is recalling nearly 7,000 baby swimsuits. The swimsuits have halter straps that were manufactured too short causing the plastic ring located at the neck of the swimsuit to press against the child’s throat and obstruct the airway. This poses a strangulation hazard to the child.
The recalled swimsuits have been sold at The babyGap, GapKids, Gap, Gap Outlet stores nationwide and online at www.gap.com from February 2010 through April 2010 for between $17 and $20.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled swimsuits away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Contact Gap to return by mail if purchased online.
