Adidas AG on Oct. 17 issued a voluntary recall for children's swimwear from its Infinitex 3-Stripe range due to a potential safety risk from stripes peeling off the products.
The German sportswear maker initiated the recall after customers reported that stripes on the swimwear could come off when in contact with water. Adidas determined that this may result in injuries from the stripes getting caught on objects or entangling other children. No injuries have been reported so far, but the company is recalling the swimwear as a precautionary measure.
The recall affects Infinitex 3-Stripe products from the 2017 and 2018 collections for children up to and including age 14. Adidas advised that consumers in that age range stop using the swimwear immediately, and it also halted in-store and online sales of the affected products.
Consumers can check the Adidas website to see if their swimwear is subject to the recall. Affected products can be returned to Adidas stores or authorized dealers for a full refund.
