Gaps recalls baby swimsuits
Gap Inc. announced a recall of baby swimsuits in the U.S. and Canada because a design flaw can potentially cause a child to strangle, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada said.

The CPSC said the swimsuits' straps are too short, causing a plastic ring at the neck of the suit to press against the child's throat.

About 7,000 of the suits sold in the U.S. and Canada are subject to the recall. Gap told the CPSC that two customers complained about the problem, but no injuries have been reported.
