CPSC, OshKosh B'Gosh Announce Recall of Newborn Girls' Garments

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), OshKosh B'Gosh, Inc. of Oshkosh, Wis., is voluntarily recalling about 21,800 OshKosh B'Gosh newborn girls' garments. The fabric, heat-sealed flowers on the front of the garments can detach after washing, posing a choking hazard to young children.

OshKosh B'Gosh has received one report of a 6-month-old child who began to choke on one of the detached flowers that had separated from the garment. It was removed from the child's throat without injury.

The recall includes two separate garments sold as sets. One garment is a lavender colored velour jumpsuit with a floral printed rib knit top. The other garment is a lavender colored French terry and velour top with printed rib knit bottom. Only jumpsuits with style numbers 516-8240 and 516-8340 and top and bottom sets with style numbers 516-8241 and 516-8341 are included in the recall. Both garments have felt fabric flowers on the front bodice. The jumpsuit has one large purple flower and two teal colored leaves on the front. The top has one large purple flower and two small blue flowers on each side. A label sewn on the inside neck of the garments reads in part "Baby OshKosh B'Gosh®," and "Made in Malaysia." Both garments were sold in sizes 0-3, 3-6, and 6-9 months.

OshKosh B'Gosh and department stores nationwide sold these garments from August 2001 through December 2001 for about $38.

Consumers should stop using these garments immediately and return them to OshKosh B'Gosh for a refund. Contact OshKosh B'Gosh at (800) 282-4674 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for return instructions. Consumers can also visit the OshKosh B'Gosh web site at
