Posted in Safety.

Target Australia has just launched a voluntary recall on a number of baby onesie (or ‘coverall’) styles. Here’s all the information you need to keep your baby safe …

Target’s $10 onesies have been recalled

“At Target Australia, the safety of our customers and their families is our highest priority,” the company posted on Facebook.

“This is why we’ve decided to conduct a voluntary recall of a specific range of baby coveralls due to a quality issue. This only applies to Target two-way zip coveralls (sizes New Baby to 12-18mths) purchased between February 2018 and June 2018. Any coveralls purchased after 13 June 2018 are not affected by this recall.”

Recall details

The recall notice is not up on the Australian Product Recalls site as yet, but the details – via Target – are as follows …

What is the problem with these onesies?

The zip puller on these suits may break and detach. A detached zip pull may pose a choking or ingestion risk to infants.
