Product Recall for HALO SleepSacks
Babies R Us, the exclusive sellers of HALO SleepSacks, have issued a product recall for the popular infant item.
The SleepSacks were reportedly sold between December 2011 and July 2013. They were approximately $25 each.
The product recall was issued after the US Consumer Product Safety Commission received six reports that the satin petals could detach, causing a choking hazard. One report stated that an infant was found gagging on the pink flower.
SleepSack products with the following GPU numbers printed on a neck label under the primary neck label are included in the recall: 2701, 2781, 2886, 2887, 3007, 3035 and 3142.
The CPSC has suggested, in light of the nature of the product recall, that the product be discontinued, and that consumers contact HALO for a replacement product.

Defective Product Recalls and Personal Injury in South Carolina
Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries from defective products, and improper or delayed product recalls. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety, such as issuing product recalls in a timely fashion. Although any product could be subject to a recall due to improper testing, some of the most common product recalls are for automobiles and automotive parts, drugs and medical devices, and children’s toys.
There are a number of reasons that defective products make it to our shelves:
- Defective manufacturing
- Inadequate testing
- Design defects
- Marketing Misrepresentation
To protect yourself and your family, it’s important to know what products have been recalled because they are defective or unsafe. Federal agencies such as the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) frequently issue product recalls for medical devices, drugs, and products that may be harmful to consumers.
Consumers that have been harmed by defective products such as drugs, medical devices, or other products, may be eligible to receive legal remedies. Such legal remedies, or damages, may include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of physical capacity, pain, suffering, and mental anguish. Punitive damages are also available in many jurisdictions to punish defendants in those cases involving particularly egregious conduct which demonstrates a reckless or wanton disregard for the safety of the public.
