Fast-fashion giant Zara has recalled a children’s shirt from stores Australia wide and online, over fears loose buttons could be a “chocking” hazard.
The Zara-branded boy’s long-sleeved shirt in pale blue, features brown buttons on the front which are “not adequately attached”.
There are fears the buttons may come off the shirt, posing chocking or suffocation risks for young kids.
“The buttons on the front of the shirt are not adequately attached and may come off the shirt,” a notice read on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website.
“There is a risk of choking or suffocation in young children, leading to severe injury or death if a button detaches and is ingested.”
The boy’s shirt has been recalled in seven sizes, and has been available for sale between July 29, 2022, and February 26, 2023.
Affected products contain the SKU code 6048/551/400 across the following sizes: 6-9 months, 9-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, 3-4 years and 4-5 years.
Consumers are urged to stop using the shirt immediately, and return it to Zara stores for a full refund.
For more information, customers can contact Zara on social media, live chat via the retailer’s website, or in store.
