    Halo recalls 27K infant blankets over choking risk

    Baby products maker Halo is recalling 27,000 of its SleepSack wearable blankets due to a choking hazard.

    Halo Innovations Inc. and the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday the wearable cotton blankets were sold at Babies ‘R’ Us from December 2011 through July 2013 for about $25. The recalled garment is white and has pink ruffles and a pink satin rose.

    The rose can detach from the blanket and pose a choking hazard to infants.


    Halo has received six reports of petals detaching from the garment. That includes one report of an infant who gagged on the detached flower.
