Suffocation Hazard Present
Baby sleeping bags offered at Marshalls and T.J. Maxx locations all over the United States were ordered to be removed from store shelves after possible suffocation risks were flagged and raised by the authorities.
Officials from the Consumer Product Safety Commission or CPSC have released the announcement ordering different brands of infant sleeping bags to be pulled out of store shelves nationwide across different Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores. They raised concerns that the said products might cause its young users to suffocate due to a manufacturing concern.
This can be caused by the openings on the sleeping bags that authorities deem as too big for a young user’s head to fit. A kid may have their head accidentally slip into it and get covered by the sleeping bag, which cuts off their oxygen supply and may lead to suffocation.
As of writing, there were no reported cases of injuries that were directly related to the potentially hazardous infant sleeping bag products. Additionally, regulators have warned customers and parents to immediately halt using the affected sleeping bags in the name of their children’s safety.
The CPSC has implored owners of the recalled products to immediately reach out to Marshalls and T.J. Maxx for the complete store policies and guidelines in accepting returns and facilitating refunds.
