Falls Creek Kids Infant/Toddler Jeans Recalled: A Choking Hazard
December 27, 2012. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Falls Creek Kids, has issued a recall of nearly 140,500 infant/toddler denim jeans.
The co-ed infant/toddler jeans were sold exclusively at Meijer and H.E.B. stores from June to November 2012. According to the CPSC, the jeans pose a hazard as the snap can become loose and fall off, posing a potential threat should it be ingested. There have been zero reported incidents.
The CSPC describes the recalled jeans as follows:
“Falls Creek Kids infant and toddler, boys and girls, denim jeans were sold in sizes 12M-5T. “Falls Creek Kids” is printed on a tag sewn on the inside back of the waistband. The jeans are denim with or without a pink star or heart graphic design stitched on the outside front and back of the jeans. The jeans also were sold with cargo style pockets. There is label on the inside of the recalled jeans near the front left pocket that includes the date of production: 04/2012 and production location: Zhangjiagang, China. Falls Creek Kids infant jeans with production code 4/2012 in sizes 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos or 6-9 mos. printed on a label on the inside of the back waistband are not included in the recall.”
