Half A Million One-Piece Infant Garments Recalled Due to Choking Hazard from Buttons

A recall has been issued for nearly 500,000 one-piece infant garments manufactured by Precious Cargo, which are similar to “onesies”, due to a risk that the snaps may detach from the fabric and pose a choking hazard for infants and young children. 

The Precious Cargo infant one-piece garments recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on August 6, following reports that suggested the snaps may detach when pulled or chewed on. While no injuries or incidents have been reported to date, this could pose a serious risk of infants choking on the small pieces.

The Precious Cargo infant one-piece garments are similar to the popular brand-name “Onesie” style infant clothes, which feature one piece with three snaps at the bottom. This allows for the garment to slip over the infant and snap on at the bottom for closure.
