JCPenney Recalls Arizona Newborn and Infant Pants

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with J.C. Penney Corporation, announced a voluntary recall of Arizona Newborn and Infant Denim Pants due to a choking hazard. The metal snap at the waist can detach posing a choking hazard to infants. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.

The recall involves Arizona brand newborn and infant girl’s and boy’s denim pants. They were sold in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months. Only those pants made in Bangladesh are affected; pants made in China are not included in the recall. The country of origin is located on a label sewn into the waistband. These pants were sold exclusively at JCPenney stores nationwide and at www.jcp.com from July 2008 through October 2008 for about $15.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pants and return them to any JCPenney store for a full refund. Pants purchased through the firm’s Web site may be returned to the Catalog Desk at any JCPenney store.
