Gap Baby Swimsuits Recalled

July 22, 2010 Updated May 4, 2010 at 5:04 PM EST

Gap is recalling about 6,500 baby swimsuits because they pose a strangulation hazard.

The swimsuits have halter straps that were manufactured too short causing the plastic ring located at the neck of the swimsuit to press against the child's throat and obstruct the airway.

Two complaints have been filed, but no injuries have been reported.

The baby swimsuits were sold in two styles.

Number 706260 is blue and white and number 700452 is red and white.

The style number can be found on the label located on the swimsuit.

Both swimsuits were sold in infant sizes up to 24 months.

They were sold at babyGap, GapKids, Gap, Gap Outlet stores nationwide and online at www.gap.com from February 2010 through April 2010 for between $17 and $20.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled swimsuits away from children and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you bought them online, you can contact Gap to return by mail,.
