CPSC, Wear Me Apparel Corp. Announce Recall of Infant Girls' Garments
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Wear Me Apparel Corp., of New York, N.Y., is
voluntarily recalling about 3,000 infant girls' garments. The paint on

prevent the possibility of injury.
The recalled garments were sold under the "Joe Boxer" brand name
in sizes 12-months through 18-months and size 24-months. The garments
were sold as sets that include a light tan sweat jacket with the word
"Smile" embroidered on the front and a painted "smiley face" yellow
zipper-pull and red sweat pants. Only style numbers 40801002 and
40801003 are included in the recall and can be found on the reverse side
