Mexx has recalled the following young girls sweaters, as the fabric balls sewn on the sweater may detach, posing a choking hazard to young children:
Style K1RC8252 in various colours from sizes 3-30 months with SKUs 4216510-60, 3435210-60, 3435310-60. (The SKU is listed on the store receipt and the style number on the labels inside the sweater.)
While neither Mexx nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these sweaters, customers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled sweaters. Customers can remove and safely dispose of the fabric balls or return the sweater to Mexx with a proof of purchase for a full refund.
For more information, customers may contact Mexx at 1-800-565-6399, visit the company's website or inquire at any Mexx Canada store.
Between August 2011 to February 2012, approximately 2,268 of the recalled sweaters in sizes 3-30 months were sold in Canada.
