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 the "smiley face" zipper-pull attached to the sweat jacket of these garments contains lead. Young children could ingest lead from the zipper-pull, presenting a lead poisoning hazard.

Wear Me Apparel Corp. and CPSC have not received any reports of injuries involving these garments. This recall is being conducted to 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 of the care label. Writing on the collar label includes "MADE IN/HECHO EN CHINA."

Kmart stores nationwide exclusively sold these garments from August 2002 through October 2002 for between $10 and $13.

Consumers should return the clothing sets to any Kmart store to receive a full refund. For additional questions, consumers can contact Wear Me Apparel Corp. at (866) 469-6257 anytime.
