CPSC Recalls Dresses for Newborns, Girls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of Laura Ashley London floral dresses for newborns and girls. Petals from the fake flowers clipped at the waist can detach, posing a choking hazard. There has been one report of a flower petal detaching, though no injuries have been reported. No ASI-listed firms were named in the recall.

The Girl’s Floral Clip Dot dresses are 100% woven cotton with a pink multicolor floral pattern, and a set of three pink petal flowers at the waist. Some were sold with a matching diaper cover. The dresses were sold in sizes from 0-3 months through 6X. “Laura Ashley London” and the size are printed on a tag inside the dress.
