    Baby products maker Halo is recalling 27,000 of its SleepSack wearable blankets due to a choking hazard.

    Halo Innovations Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that the wearable cotton blankets were sold at Babies R Us from December 2011 through July 2013 for about $25.

    The recalled garment is white and has pink ruffles and a pink satin rose. The rose can detach from the blanket and pose a choking hazard to infants.

    Halo has received six reports of petals detaching from the garment, including one report of an infant who gagged on the detached flower.

    The sack-shaped blankets have cut-outs for the baby's arms, a zipper down the center and a sewn bottom. They were sold in small and medium sizes.

    The recall includes SleepSack products with GPU numbers 2701, 2781, 2886, 2887, 3007, 3035 and 3142. The GPU number can be found printed on a neck label under the primary neck label.

    People should stop using the blanket and contact the company for instructions on how to remove the flower and receive a free replacement product. Consumers can call Halo Innovations toll-free at 866-819-8118 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, e-mail halorecall@nrmsinc.com or fill out an online form on the company's website.
