The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning that Carter’s tag-less baby clothes may have caused 400 babies to develop a rash on their backs. The clothes in the 2007 line, were made in foreign countries and have a heat-transferred “tag-less” label. It appears that some babies have had an allergic reaction to one or more ingredients in the ink.
For more information about the “tag-less” labels, see the Carter’s web-site: http://www.carters.com/Corporate/tagless_message.aspx
The allergic reaction seems to be of the “contact dermatitis” variety and clears up after a few days of not wearing the garment.
