Affected products

Various Onesies with Metal Snaps by Alstyle Apparel & Activewear

Product description

This recall involves various onesies with metal snaps supplied by Alstyle Apparel & Activewear and distributed in Canada by Gildan Activewear Inc.

"Alstyle" and the words "Made in Mexico" are printed on the tag sewn into the neck area and "Alstyle" is printed on a white label sewn into the left inside seam. This recall only covers bodysuits that say "Made in Mexico" on the neck label and "Alstyle" on the inside seam label.

The following sizes and colours are included in the recall:
Size Colour Model Number
6M, 12M, 18M White, pink, red, blue and black 1ZEE

Health Canada has become aware that many of the recalled onesies have been screenprinted by various companies and sold with various designs printed on them. These onesies that were Made in Mexico may have been relabeled by Alstyle's customers, and as a result, the "Alstyle" brand name may have been removed from the top tag sewn into the neck area. In those circumstances, they can be identified by the white label sewn into the left inside seam with "Alstyle" printed on it. Onesies with a tag that says "Made in India" are not part of the recall.   

Hazard identified

The metal snaps on the recalled Alstyle baby onesies may detach resulting in a choking hazard for children.

As of January 18, 2018, Alstyle has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these onesies in Canada and in the Unites States. In the United States, Alstyle has received one report of the snap coming off from its distributors but none from the products sold at retail.
