H&M Recalls 65,000 Girls’ Leggings Over Choking Risk

H&M is recalling 65,000 pairs of leggings for girls because a metal part on the belt can detach and potential pose a choking hazard to young children, according to a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announcement.

The retailer received one report of a choking incident in the UK, but there have been no other reports of injury or otherwise in the U.S.

H&M sold the belted leggings at stores nationwide and online between August 2012 and April 2014 for between $3 and $15.

The garments have an order number on the care label attached to the waistband at the back of the leggings and order numbers being recalled include: 345180, 400690, 400691, 441760, 441761, 441762, 446960, 446961, 446962, 446963, 446965 and 978210.

Customers who have purchased the leggings are being asked to remove the belt from the leggings and discontinue using it, and can contact H&M customer service for instructions on how to return the belt for a $20 gift card.
