Recall Details

Description:

WASHINGTON, DC -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, New York Attorney General and Elkay Industries Inc., New York, New York, issued a warning today to consumers about a two piece garment for children under three years of age with small parts which could be a choking hazard.

Decorative yellow plastic buttons shaped like 5 point stars are attached to the front of the shirt. When the Consumer Product Safety Commission subjected the stars to use and abuse testing, the stars, which are small parts, separated from the shirt. Neither the CPSC, nor the N.Y.A.G., nor Elkay Industries, Inc., knows of any injuries involving these garments.

The stars are on a long sleeved knitted white shirt with red and blue stripes and the works "Little Pro" across the front in 1 l/4 inch letters. The shirt is sold with long corduroy pants. The label in the neck of the shirt says, "MADE IN U.S.A. KIDSTUFF*** RN 43051, AN APPAREL PRODUCT OF ELKAY". Approximately 9,200 units were sold nationwide from June 1986 to the present.

Consumers who purchased these garments for children under three should immediately remove the stars from the shirt and discard them to eliminate potential choking hazards. Retailers who have "Little Pro" garments in stock should stop selling them immediately.

Anyone wishing additional information may contact Elkay Industries Inc., on a toll-free number 800-223-2393 (calls made only from outside New York State) or a toll call number 212-560-7600 or contact the CPSC toll-free number at 800-638-CPSC.
