New recall: Target issues warning over clothing range

New recall: Target issues warning over clothing range

Target has been forced to issue a recall for an entire range of baby clothes after fears that small children could choke due to a broken zipper.

Yesterday, the Wesfarmers-owned department store urged customers to return a $10 baby onesie sold online and in stores between February and June this year.

The coverall comes in 15 prints and ranges in sizes from newborn to 12-18 months old.

All products in the range have been affected by the recall.

In a statement, Target warned shoppers that the defect was a zip puller that could break and detach, which could “pose a choking/ingestion risk to infants”.

The company told parents to “stop using the product and return the product to a Target or Target Country store as soon as possible”.

Customers will be given a full refund on any coveralls they return.

Further information can be found at the Target Customer Support Centre on 1300 753 567.

This is the second baby product to be recalled this week after breast pump manufacturer Medela announced that detachable wall plugs should be returned as a matter of urgency.

“Medela has received isolated reports of the detachable wall plug breaking into two parts, thereby potentially exposing two metal terminals and creating a risk of electric shock,” the company said in a statement.
