Little Laura of California Inc. Announces Recall of Infantís Garments

Little Laura of California Inc. of Los Angeles, Calif., is recalling about 2,000 Sweet Suzana brand infants' shirt-and-pant sets. The shirts have tulip-shaped buttons that can break apart, presenting a choking hazard to young children.

The shirt-and-pant set is available in sizes 12, 18, and 24 months. The set includes a white and pink checked pant and a white short sleeve shirt with a white and pink checked collar. The front of the shirt is decorated with pink and green vinyl tulip appliqués and pink and green tulip buttons. The shirt has two sewn-in labels at the neck. One label reads in part, "50% cotton...50% polyester...RN#41601...MADE IN U.S.A." The other label displays the "Sweet Suzana" trademark. Kids R Us stores nationwide sold the garments from January 1997 through March 1997 for about $14.

Consumers should stop using these garments immediately and return them to the nearest Kids R Us store for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Little Laura of California Inc. at (800) 213-1994, extension 233. The number is operational 24 hours a day.
