SanMar (UPIC: SNMR) has announced a voluntary recall of all Precious Cargo Infant One-Piece garments. Recent testing revealed a potential choking hazard from snaps that may detach from the bottom of the garment. There have been no reports of injury or other incidents. The Issaquah, Washington-based supplier sold the garments from July 2014 through July 2015, and it is working with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to follow established guidelines for recalling the product.

The recall involves Precious Cargo Infant One-Piece garments with a three snap bottom closure. The garments are 100-percent cotton and were sold in sizes 6M, 12M and 18M in the following solid colors: athletic heather, aquatic blue, candy pink, clover green, jet black, lime, navy, purple, red, royal, sangria, white and yellow. “Precious Cargo” and an elephant are printed on a blue tag sewn into the neck area.  Style number CAR40 is printed on a white label sewn into the left inside seam.

“As a parent, there is nothing I take more seriously than the safety of those who wear our children’s products,” says Jeremy Lott, SanMar’s president. “We are working hard on a voluntary ‘fast track’ product recall with the support and guidance of the CPSC. SanMar follows all Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations and QCA guidelines as well as our own quality control standards. We are looking at all of our processes to see how we can enhance them to make sure our products continually meet our high standards.”

SanMar has removed the Precious Cargo Infant One-Pieces from its inventory and requests that all companies immediately stop selling the product. SanMar customers should visit for refund instructions. The company also asks that anyone who possesses CAR40 inventory or has sold the product to contact their client to cease further distribution of this garment. End users, retailers or third-party sellers of the Precious Cargo Infant One-Pieces (CAR40) should call (888) 770-7018 or go online to for more information.

Lott adds, “We have reached out directly to our affected customers to explain the situation and ask for their help to remove this product from the marketplace so that we can make it right for them and their clients. Approximately half the recalled units were never sold and are sitting in our distribution centers waiting to be destroyed.”
