Bonds has been forced to issue an urgent recall on a number of their baby onesies after an industrial sewing needle was found on the inside sleeve of a floral long sleeve baby onesie.
Anny Brooks discovered the needle whilst preparing to dress her 7-week-old daughter after a bath on Sunday night.
“Attention parents! Tonight I gave my 7-week-old daughter a bath. I am pedantic about putting my hand through the kids clothes before putting them on them to see if there are stray threads, I am so very thankful I did tonight because I what I found shocked me,” Mrs Brooks wrote.

“In a brand new 0000 bonds suit in the right arm stitching was a broken needle, it was entwined in the thread. So obviously it snapped off during the sewing process and was never removed.
“It scratched my hand, my hands are like leather boots so I dread to think what it would have done to the very sensitive skin of a 7-week-old baby. I’m so angry that something so dangerous was left inside a newborn suit.
“Please check your children’s clothing before putting them on them as you never know what you may find.”
Bonds has urged thousands of Australian parents to return some styles of baby clothing purchased between December 2013 and August 2015.
They include the Newbies Longsleeve Coverall (sizes 00000-0 and style no. BYKUA or BYKUW), Pop Woven Dress (sizes 000-2 and style no. BYGJA) and Beginnings Cardigan (sizes 0000-0 and style no. BZMKA or BZMKT).
“Customers should cease using the product and return the garment to its place of purchase or to Bonds for a full refund of the purchase price,” Bonds said in a recall notice on Thursday afternoon.
