These tagless labels with solid backgrounds

have caused rashes in 400 children

Carter's sure makes some cute baby clothes, but on Friday, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a warning about Carter's baby knits with tagless labels, including body suits, shirts, and pajamas. The warning is for clothes from the fall 2007 line (about 110 million garments), which are still available at some stores.

are not associated with the rashes

According to the CPSC, 400 babies who wore the clothes got rashes on their backs. Carter's online announcement said, "It appears that a very small percentage of children can be allergic to one or more ingredients in the labels."

If your child has a reaction to the clothing, stop using these clothes immediately and see your pediatrician if the rash gets worse. Carter's will give you a refund. You'll find answers to more of your questions about Carter's baby clothing warning on its corporate site, or you can contact the company toll-free by phone at 888-282-4674 or by e-mail at contactus@carters.com.
