Safety alert: Canada-wide recall of baby sleepers due to 'choking and strangulation hazards'

Walmart says 216,595 affected sleepers were sold across Canada.

Health Canada warns parents to check their baby's sleepers due to choking and strangulation hazards.

A recall notification posted on Wednesday, Oct. 4, states that George Brand Sleepers for infants from Walmart have been recalled because they pose a health risk. After repeated washes, the zipper pulls and foot grips may fall off, posing choking and ingestion hazards.

There are two affected zippered pajama styles for both boys and girls; the size is for newborn to 5T.
