H&M has recalled a batch of its girls leggings with belts

Swedish apparel retailer H&M Hennes & Mauritz has recalled a batch of its girls leggings with belts due to them posing a potential health hazard.

The recall involves the plastic bow-shaped belt that comes with leggings sold in sizes 1½A through 8A. A ball-shaped metal piece that holds the belt together could fall off and present a choking hazard, the retailer said.

H&M has received one report of a choking incident in the UK, but no reports in Canada.

Around 11,355 of the items were sold in Canada between 1 August 2012 to 1 April this year. The leggings were manufactured in Bangladesh, China, and Turkey.
