Discount School Supply has announced a recall of approximately 10,400 packages of Environments brand children's waterproof bibs.

The recalled bibs have a waterproof plastic backing that can separate from the terry cloth fabric, creating a suffocation hazard to children.

This recall involves Environments brand children's waterproof-back terry bibs sold in in packages of 12. There are two styles of bibs included in the recall. The Pocket style bib is 10 inches wide by 16 inches long with an adjustable snap closure. The Cover-Up style bib is 10 inches wide by 16.5 inches long with cap sleeves and smock-back snap closures.

Both styles of bibs were sold in blue and have clear plastic waterproof backing along with Environments, Inc. and SKU number 900822 or 900823 printed on a label affixed to the bib.

Discount School Supply has received 12 reports—involving at least 23 packages of bibs—of the waterproof plastic material separating from the bib. No injuries or incidents have been reported in connection with this recall to date.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bibs and contact Discount School Supply for a full refund. Discount School Supply is contacting all known purchasers directly.
