Today, BreathableBaby and the CPSC announced a voluntary recall of more than 15,000 BreathableSack Wearable Blankets. The product was recalled due to the fact that the zipper pull tabs and sliders can detach, posing a choking hazard for babies.

Here’s what you need to know:

The BreathableSacks are sleeveless, wearable blankets. They come in two sizes: Small (10-18 pounds) and medium (16-24 pounds) and come in three colors: Kiwi Whoo, pink Hip, and blue Splash. There’s one animal (either an owl, hippo or elephant) stitched on the left chest of each blanket. Only BreathableSacks from Lot No. 124 with a manufacture date of 04/17/2012 are included in the recall. A tag sewn inside the right foot reads: Date of Manufacture: 04/17/2012, Lot No. 124.

If you own the recalled blanket, stop using it immediately and contact BreathableBaby either online or by telephone at (877) 827-4442. The product was sold nationwide between June 2012 and August 2013 for about $20.
