Burt's Bees Baby has issued a recall for 8,500 infant coveralls—in addition to 44 sold in Canada—due to a choking hazard.

The snap at the crotch may detach, posing a choking hazard to babies.

The affected items include infant Butterfly Garden Coverall & Hat Sets. They are made of 100 percent organic cotton and were sold in blossom pink with white butterflies. A white ruffle runs around the neck and down the front, and there are snaps in the crotch. They were sold in infant clothing sizes NB, 3M, 6M, and 9M.

The August 2016 manufacture date code is printed in the 08/2016 format on the inside garment tag inside a seam. The brand name, Burt's Bees Baby, as well as the garment sizes are printed on the inside back of the item. Only the coverall sets with style number LY24195 on the hangtag are affected by this recall.
