Statement from Wal-Mart Regarding Voluntary Removal of Hamco Baby Bibs

Wal-Mart has voluntarily pulled three baby bib products manufactured by Hamco from its store shelves nationwide. The products involved are the Baby Connection 2-Pack Easy Wipe Bibs, Baby Connection 7-Pack Feeder Bibs and Baby Connection 2-Pack Feeder Bibs.

In cooperation with the Illinois Attorney General, Hamco & Wal-Mart are conducting a consumer refund/replacement program for these bibs in Illinois. It is important to note that the consumer refund/replacement program is limited to Illinois due to that state’s specific requirements.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries surrounding these items. We continue to cooperate fully with the Illinois Attorney General on this matter.

Any Illinois customer who has purchased the bibs may obtain a full refund by returning the items to their local Wal-Mart or obtain a replacement by calling 1-877-373-3812.

The Consumer Safety Products Commission (CSPC) has tested these bibs and determined that they do not present a safety hazard. Any questions regarding these findings should be directed to the CSPC.

At Wal-Mart, we are committed to providing our customers with products that meet or exceed safety standards. We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers.
