WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- About 15,000 zippered baby blankets are under recall, as they may pose a choking hazard to infants, a U.S. watchdog agency said.

The zipper pull tabs and sliders on the BreathableSack wearable blankets for infants made by BreathableBaby of Minnetonka, Minn., can detach, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a late Wednesday release.

The BreathableSacks were made in China and sold nationwide from June 2012 to August 2013 for about $20.

The products are sleeveless, wearable blankets, that zipper in the front. They come in small and medium sizes, appropriate for infants of 10 to 18 pounds and from 16 to 24 pounds, respectively.

The recall involves items from Lot 124 with a manufacture date of April 24, 2012.

Consumers were advised to stop using the BreathableSacks from Lot No 124 and contact BreathableBaby for a replacement garment.

Consumers can call 877-827-4442 for information.
