CPSC Issues Warning About Dangerous Onesies

Solid Background Labels- Possible Rash CulpritIn early September I wrote that tag-less labels might cause burn like rashes on your childs skin. Today the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and Carter’s issued a formal advisory regarding the tag-less labels from Carters Fall 2007 line.

The report provides the following details about the labels to watch out for: “This advisory applies to Carter’s Fall 2007 product line. The Fall 2007 line utilizes a label on the inside back of the garment that has a raised surface with a solid, rather than a stenciled, background. This advisory does not apply to previous and current product lines, which utilize labels with stenciled backgrounds.”

At this time, a recall has NOT been issued for Carter’s Onesies with the offending tag-less labels. If your child has a reaction, the company website recommends, “You should stop using the garment that caused the reaction. If the condition persists, please contact your pediatrician for advice.”

The actual cause of these reactions is as of yet, unknown. Carter’s states, “It appears that a very small percentage of children can be allergic to one or more ingredients in the labels.” The company also states that the labels meet all quality and safety standards.
