"Made in Indonesia" and the size is on the front of the care label. The BABY GUESS or GUESS GIRLS label is above the care label. Department and specialty stores nationwide sold the garments from October 2000 to December 2000 for between $36 and $42.

Consumers should stop using these garments immediately and call the company for instructions on returning the garment for another garment of the same size.
