Children's Playwear Recalled by Lila + Hayes Due to Choking Hazard

The buttons can become detached from the clothing, posing a choking hazard

June 7, 2017

Lila + Hayes is recalling 600 pieces of children's playwear because they can pose a choking hazard to young children.

The buttons can become detached from the pieces of clothing, posing a risk of choking.

The affected items include Benton and Eloise pima cotton sleeveless bubble playwear. The Benton-style clothing was sold in navy, white, light blue, and blue and green ticking stripes, while the Eloise style was sold in navy, white, pink and blue and green floral. The garments have a snap closure at their bottom as well as crisscrossing straps that button over the shoulders on the front.

The Benton-style garments were sold in the following boys' sizes: NB (newborn), zero to 24 months, 2T, and 3T. Those in the Eloise style were sold in the same sizes for girls. There is a garment tag inside the seam that includes the manufacture date codes for December 2016 (DEC16) and February 2016 (FEB16). Both the size and the brand name Lila + Hayes are printed on the inside of the back of the playwear.

The garments were sold at Layette in Dallas, Texas; Hip Hip Hip Hooray in Dallas; and Born Children's in Montgomery, Alabama stores—as well as online at the official Lila + Haye's website—from February 2017 until April 2017. They were sold for between $45 and $65.

Although no injuries have been reported, the company has gotten eight reports of detaching buttons while in use. For this reason, consumers are urged to stop using the garments immediately and to contact Lila + Hayes for a pre-paid mailer that they can use to return the playwear in exchange for a full refund.

For more information, consumers can reach Lila + Hayes at (855) 850-1308.
