American Eagle Outfitter's children's clothing store, 77kids, is recalling pants and shorts for toddler girls because they pose a choking hazard.
A metal clasp on the waistband could separate from the clothing, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Approximately 1,200 pairs of shorts and jeans are affected by the recall.
"This recall involves toddler girl pants, jeans and shorts sold in various styles. The style number is printed on a sewn-in label located under the care/content label on the inside of the waistband. The garments were sold in sizes 12-18 months through 5 years," according to the CPSC .
The following style numbers are affected by the recall:
• Garment: Skinny Cord
Style Number: 3007
• Garment: Boyfriend Vintage Wash
Style Number: 3012
• Garment: Cut Off Bermuda Short
Style Number: 3013
• Garment: Flare Vintage Blue Wash
Style Number: 3029
• Garment: Flare LT Wash
Style Number: 3030
• Garment: Flare Rip and Repair
Style Number: 3034
• Garment: Roll Cuff Bermuda Short
Style Number: 3035
The pants were sold at 77kids by American Eagle stores nationwide and online at www.77kids.com from July through August 2010 for $24 to $34.
As a North Charleston personal injury attorney , I'm glad to hear the recall was issued before any reports of child personal injury occurred. I urge parents to check their children's clothes for these products and return them to 77kids by American Eagle store to receive a full reimbursement.
