H&M Recalls Girls' Leggings Over Safety Risk

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - H&M is recalling about 65,000 pairs of leggings for girls because a metal part on the belt can detach, which could pose a choking risk to young children.

The retailer has received one report of a choking incident in the United Kingdom but no reports of injury or other incidents in the U.S.

H&M sold the pants from August 2012 to April 2014 for $3 to $15. The recall involves leggings
sold in a number of colors and sizes from 1.5-8 years. The leggings have a plastic belt with a bow-shaped buckle.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that consumers should stop using the product and contact H&M about returning the belt for a $20 gift card.
