Wear Me Apparel Corp. Recalls Infant Boys' Rompers

Wear Me Apparel Corp. of New York, NY is recalling about 30,000 Little MiraclesTM rompers for infant boys. The paint on the rompers' cap snaps presents a potential lead poisoning hazard to young children. The paint on the cap snaps violates the ban on paint containing lead under the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Act.

Little MiraclesTM rompers involved in this recall have style numbers 9448 or 9449 on the reverse side of the care label. These romper styles have three orange or red snaps at the neckline. The rompers are 100 percent cotton with short sleeves and a snap crotch. Both styles are available in five sizes: 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 12 months, and 18 months. The rompers have two sewn-in labels in the neck. One label identifies the Little MiraclesTM brand, and the other label displays RN 46795 and provides information on the garment's size, fiber content, and care. Kmart stores nationwide sold the rompers beginning in October 1996 for $4.44.

Consumers should return the rompers to any Kmart store for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should contact Wear Me Apparel Corp. at (800) 223-0777.
