In an extension of an earlier recall on sweaters, Mexx has recalled the following young girls dresses, as the fabric balls sewn on the sweater may detach, posing a choking hazard to young children:
Style K1RC8251 in "Purple Haze" (581) from sizes 3-30 months with SKUs (4216410-4216460) and "Playing Pink" (672 and 502) with SKUs (3436210-3436260). (The SKU is listed on the store receipt and the style number on the labels inside the dress.)
While neither Mexx nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these dresses, customers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled items. Customers can remove and safely dispose of the fabric balls or return the dresses 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 March 2012, approximately 1,521 of the recalled dresses in sizes 3-30 months were sold in Canada.
