J.C. Penney is recalling more than 225-thousand one-piece infant outfits. Texas-based Penney says decorative patches on the clothing can come off and pose a choking hazard.
The retailer has received three reports of the puffy patches
detaching from the Okie Dokie cotton bodysuits -- though no
injuries were reported.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the short-sleeved
bodysuits snap at the bottom. About one-fourth of the recalled outfits, made in China, are for newborns up to nine months. The others for babies age 12-to-24 months.
Penney stores and its Web site sold them from last October to
February -- for about six dollars. Children should stop wearing the suits, which can be returned to a Penney store for a refund.
