The serial number is 5099011588787.

Dunnes has also shared the style number -6454486.

Dunnes Stores explained that the large neck opening may pose a suffocation risk because it could cover the baby's face.

The CCPC explained that a baby is at risk because of the size of the circumference.

A baby could slip down into the sleeping bag and then suffocate from the garment covering their face.

TK Maxx is also recalling numerous sleep bags.

Customers have been asked to return selected baby sleep bags after a suffocation risk was identified.

The products were sold in stores between August 2018 and December 2020.

The brand names are Sam & Jo, First Wish, Little Red Caboose, Willow Blossom, Aspen, Piper & Posie.

Shabby Chic, Artisan, Dylan & Abby, Miss Mona Mouse, Harry & Me are also being recalled.

The CCPC has advised parents to follow their guidance on baby sleep bags.

There are multiple risks associated with using them, including suffocation and strangulation. Choking is also a risk if the product does not fit the guidelines.
