Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: TJX Australia Pty Ltd, a Mascot, New South Wales establishment, recalls certain batch/lots of various brands of Infant Sleep Bags from the Australian marketplace due to suspected failure to properly calibrate the size of the product’s neck opening to the size of the infant. As a result, the opening of the recalled Infant Sleep Bags could be too large and may allow a baby to slip down into the Bags itself, covering the baby’s mouth and nose, posing entrapment and/or suffocation hazards.

These Infant Sleep Bag products were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in the Australian states/regions of Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria although it is always possible these bedding products had wider distribution within the country.

According to the ACCC, TJX Australia has recalled certain batch/lots of Infant Sleep Bags from the Australian marketplace due to suspected failure to properly calibrate the size of the product’s neck opening to the size of the infant. If a baby’s face is covered by the recalled garment or the child becomes trapped inside, there is an increased risk of suffocation, which can lead to severe injury and/or death.

As a direct result of this suspected defect, you should neither serve nor consume the recalled Sleep Bag products identified above. As a result of these reported defects and risks, you should not use the sleeping garments with your child nor allow him or her to play with or be near them.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Sleep Bag products, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 0-0-0, your closest hospital or emergency centre equipped to properly treat entrapment and/or suffocation.
