With the cooperation of the J.C. Penney Corporation, located in Plano, TX, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a voluntary recall of the Arizona(r) Newborn and Infant Denim Pants. Consumers in possession of this product are advised to stop using it immediately.
Approximately 24,000 units of the Arizona(r) Newborn and Infant Denim Pants are being recalled from the market due to a metal snap at the waist of the pants. This snap may detach and pose a choking hazard to infants. There have been no reported incidents or injuries related to this product.
The Arizona(r) brand newborn and infant girl’s and boy’s denim pants were sold in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months. The products were manufactured in multiple locations, but only those pants produced in Bangladesh are affected this this recall. Country of origin can be located on a label sewn into the waistband.
This product was sold nationwide for about $15 at JCPenney stores and www.jcp.com beginning in July 2008. To remedy this situation, consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled pants and return them to any JCPenney store for a full refund.
