Health Canada has announced the recall of long- and short-sleeved Chimparoo Versatile cardi-wraps. The product is available in several colours, but only the black cardi-wraps are affected.
The supporting black fabric on the cardi-wrap has shown evidence of premature deterioration. After two years, the fabric deteriorates to the point where it can easily tear—ultimately posing a fall hazard for infants.
No injuries have been reported.
If you have this product: Immediately discontinue use and contact the company, VIJA design INC., at 1-855-289-5343 to exchange it for a similar (beige) organic fabric that is reliable and unaffected.
