Problem: The fibres of the pom poms that are attached to the bodysuit, can be removed and as such regarded as a potential choking hazard. This does not meet the strict safety standards Best&Less says it self-imposes on the products within its baby range.
In a statement, Best&Less said, “Product safety is at the centre of our product development processes. Every item undergoes stringent safety assessments by our expert Quality Assurance team and requires dual sign-off for approval into our range. As such, in the last five years, we have initiated five voluntary recalls which is considerably lower than the industry average.
“This particular playsuit was assessed by the Quality team as well as tested in a laboratory prior to it becoming available to our customers. The fibres of the pom pom did not pull out in those items tested. The product has subsequently been manufactured and arrived in store, however, has now presented this risk.”
What to do: Any customers with this playsuit should stop using it immediately and return it to your nearest Best&Less store for a full refund. Alternatively, customers should remove the pom poms from the garment if they wish to keep this playsuit.
