Good Lad Apparel Announces Recall of Infant Girls' Garment and Shoes

 

Good Lad Apparel of Philadelphia, Pa., is voluntarily recalling about 52,000 infant girls' garments and sandals. Small, decorative items on the garments can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

Good Lad has received three reports of incidents involving the decorative items. A child swallowed a decorative ladybug and two others began to choke on decorative flowers. There have been no reports of injury.

This recall involves three separate garment sets. Two of the garment sets include a newborn and infant dress with sandals. The other includes an infant capri set with sandals. The dresses were sold in either, red and yellow or chambray. Both have decorative items like ladybugs and flowers attached. The capri sets were sold in lime, coral, yellow and purple with flower attachments around the neckline and on the sandals. The Good Lad logo is printed on a label inside of the garment, along with the words, "Good Lad of Philadelphia." The garments were made for ages 3 to 24 months. Department stores sold the infant garments nationwide from January 2002 through April 2002 for about $15.

Consumers should stop using these garments and sandals immediately. Consumers should return the garments to the store where purchased to receive a refund. For more information, consumers should contact the company toll-free at (877) 599-5530 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
