Seattle, WA—BabyUnited LLC, dba BabyLegs, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled about 4,500 baby leg warmers and socks over choking hazards. The CPSC announced the recall on December 23, 2010.

The recall was initiated after discovering that the heart appliqué on the leg warmers and socks can detach, posing a choking hazard to children.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves only those BabyLegs brand leg warmers, ankle-high socks and knee-high socks adorned with a heart-shape appliqué. The recalled products are pink, white or purple cable knit socks and leg warmers.”

Consumers are advised to remove and discard the heart appliqué, and then contact BabyLegs for a full refund or a coupon, which can be redeems on the BabyLegs website.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact BabyLegs toll-free at (888) 791-6098 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.babylegs.com.
