Embrace Technologies has issued a recall of about 1,900 Little Lotus baby swaddles and sleeping bags because they may pose a choking hazard to young children.

The shoulder snaps on the baby swaddles and sleeping bags can break or detach, leading any children who swallow the snaps to choke.

This recall involves the Little Lotus baby swaddles with model number 901-01 and sleeping bags with model numbers 830-03, 830-05, and 830-07. The 100 percent cotton, sack-shaped baby swaddles and sleeping bags were sold online from January 2016 through April 2016 in small, medium, and large sizes and in cream with multicolored hand prints, mint, and pastel colors and prints. They have a snap button on each shoulder. The Little Lotus logo and model number are stamped in white at the bottom in the interior of the swaddle and sleeping bag.

The company has received 15 reports of the snaps breaking or detaching from the swaddles and sleeping bags, though no injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and contact Little Lotus for instructions on how to receive a full refund or a store credit for a full refund, plus a $25 credit towards a new purchase. Embrace Technologies is contacting consumers directly.
