US: American Eagle recalls 1,200 toddler items
US clothing retailer American Eagle Outfitters has recalled around 1,200 toddler pants, jeans and shorts.
It has recalled the items, made for girls aged 12-18 months to five, because a metal clasp at the waistband can detach and pose a choking hazard. No injuries have been reported.
The garments were sold exclusively at 77kids by American Eagle stores in the US and online between July and August this year. They cost between $24 and $34 and were manufactured in China.
American Eagle has instructed shoppers to return the garments involved for a full refund.
