Clothing manufacturer The Gap has recalled almost 7,000 children’s swimsuits
saying that the tied halter-top and plastic ring design of the bathing suits could pose a strangulation risk to children. While no child injuries or child deaths have been reported, The Gap says that it decided to announce a voluntary recall after several parents issued complaints about the strangulation danger.
Parents who have purchased this bathing suit are urged to take the swimsuit away from children and return it at a Gap store for a full refund. Consumer are encouraged to contact Gap representatives if they bought the children’s clothing piece online. The girls swimsuits were sold at Gap stores and online from February 2010 through April 2010 for between $17 and $20.
