WASHINTON, D.C. -

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for a popular children's clothing item.

The commission has recalled HALO Sleepsacks Wearable Blankets due to a choking hazard. They warn that consumers should stop using the product until instructed otherwise since petals from the floral design on the blankets can detach and pose a choking hazard to infants.

The blankets, sold exclusively at Babies "R" Us from December 2011 through July 2013, are 100-percent cotton with pink-edged ruffles and a pink satin rose embellishment on the front. They have cut-outs for the baby's arms, zipper down the center, sewn bottom and are sold in small and medium sizes. SleepSack products with GPU numbers 2701, 2781, 2886, 2887, 3007, 3035 and 3142 printed on a neck label are included in the recall as well.

Thus far, the agency states that they have received six reports of the petals detaching from he blankets, including one where an infant was found gagging on a detached petal. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the blankets and contact HALO innovations for a pre-paid envelope containing instructions to remove and return the flower and order a free replacement product.

Consumers can contact HALO Innovations of Minnetonka, Minnesota, toll-free at (866) 819-8118 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The product was manufactured in China.
