BONDS have been forced to recall thousands of its popular Newbies Coveralls, Woven Dressees and Beginnings Cardigans after a Victorian mother found an industrial sewing machine needle sewn into the arm of her daughter’s onesie.
Anny Brooks found the needle in a new Bonds Coverall on Sunday night when she was dressing her seven-week-old daughter Nina after her bath.
“I’m very pedantic about checking my kids’ clothes. I run my hands inside the garments, I think it’s just an OCD thing,” she told news.com.au.
“I ran my hand through it after I gave her a bath and it scratched my hand. I thought it was just one of those plastic tag things but I pulled my hand out and there was a nice big scratch there.”
“I turned the suit inside out and there was a broken industrial sewing needle there. It was intertwined in the thread — it was sewn into the suit. I had washed the suit beforehand and it still was stuck in there.”
Bonds have issued a recall on all three products in the range that could have been compromised and were available for sale between 29th May 2015 – 5th August 2015.
Retailers selling the products include Myer, Big W, Bonds Retail Outlets, bonds.com.au, Toys R Us, Baby Bunting, House of Bonds, David Jones, Your Wardrobe, Trade Secret.
The product may have a broken needle from manufacturing and may protrude through the product, posing a potential laceration or puncture hazard.
The recall applies to Styles No: BYKUW, BYKUA and BYGJA
Consumers with affected styles are asked to return the product to the place of purchase or contact Bonds on 1800 806 906 or [email protected] for a full refund or replacement
