Coles recalls infant ‘grow bags’ over confusing fire warnings

Coles is recalling a popular range of baby sleeping bags over fears infants may suffer burns due to label confusion on the clothing.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued a recall notice on Tuesday urging parents to immediately stop using the Mix Girls Heart, Boys Stripe and Unisex Cloud Infant Grow Bags – all sizes.

In the notice, customers were advised that the Grow Bags have a High Fire Danger warning label attached to them, but also have a Low Fire Danger statement on the sizing/care label.

“The Grow Bags are high fire danger items. Potential confusion about the fire danger could risk infants being burned if the Grow Bags are used around fire hazards.”

The grow bags were sold at Coles Supermarkets nationwide between 6th July – 22nd  July.

Customers have been advised to return the grow bags to a Coles store for a full refund.
