Shopko Stores Inc. Announces Recall of Infant Garments

Shopko Stores Inc. of Green Bay, Wis. is recalling approximately 68,000 Peek-A-Babe newborn and infant "creepers," a short- sleeved body suit with two snaps at the left shoulder and three snaps at the crotch. The snaps can detach, posing a choking hazard to children.

These 100 percent cotton creepers were sold in sizes "0-3M" to 24M. The boys' creepers were made in solid and striped knit fabrics. The girls' creepers were made in various pastel shades of pointelle knit fabric, with a satin bow attached to the neck and an embroidered figure, such as a butterfly or heart, below the bow. Writing on the collar labels includes, "MADE IN HONG KONG." Shopko stores nationwide sold these garments from December 1998 to June 1999 for $4 to $6.

Consumers should immediately stop using these garments, and return them to Shopko for a refund. For more information, call Shopko at
(800) 791-7333 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday CDT, or visit the Shopko website at www.shopko.com.
