The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Girls’ Leggings sold in the following colors:

black/pink belt, black/silver belt, black and white stripe/black belt, blue and white stripe/blue belt, blue hounds-tooth/blue belt, grey check/pink belt, grey with dots/pink belt, khaki/pink belt, khaki with dots/pink belt, pink and white check/white belt, purple/purple belt and red and blue plaid/blue belt.

The Knit Leggings were sold sizes 1-1/2 to 8 years and have a plastic belt with bow-shaped buckle. The brand, “H&M” is printed on the back of the care label. The care label is either black or white and attached to the waistband in the back of the Leggings. The garments have an O/N (order number) and P/N (product number) printed on the top of the care label. The following O/N numbers are included in the recall: 345180, 400690, 400691, 441760, 441761, 441762, 446960, 446961, 446962, 446963, 446965 and 978210.

According to the CPSC, a metal part on the belt can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. The firm has received one report of a choking incident in the United Kingdom, but no reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products in the US. Nevertheless, consumers should stop using the belt and remove it from the Leggings and contact H&M Customer Service for instructions on returning the belt for a $20 gift card.
