Textile discounter starts recall for baby sleeping bags
The textile discounter Zeeman has started a recall for baby sleeping bags. According to the company, the zipper of the sleeping bag could come off; in the worst case, there is a risk of suffocation.
Zipper can come loose
The cheap textile chain Zeeman calls back baby sleeping bags. According to a message from the company published on the internet portal “produktwarnung.eu”, “it was found that the zipper of the sleeping bag with the article number 53978 could come loose, which could lead to suffocation in the worst case.”
Sleeping bags were sold in June 2019
According to the information, the affected products were sold in June 2019.
The textile discounter asks customers who have bought affected baby sleeping bags to stop using them.
The sleeping bags can be returned to any Zeeman branch for a refund of the purchase price.
Swallowed small parts can be dangerous
No matter if zippers, a marble or other toys: Small parts swallowed can cause severe damage in the gastrointestinal tract.
Especially when it comes to batteries, magnets or long, pointed objects such as a nail or a sewing needle, those affected should not hesitate, but should definitely go to a doctor.
This also applies if large pieces of food get stuck in the esophagus.
With less dangerous parts, the doctor often does not have to do anything else.
Because, according to the German Society for Gastroenterology, Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS), around 80 to 90 percent of foreign bodies find their way outside together with the food porridge.
Some could be removed endoscopically and surgery was only necessary in rare cases. (ad)
