Does everyone know about the Carters tagless recall?

I have three beautiful kids.
I would recommend joining the Mom Safety Alerts application on face book.
You will be notified of all food related recalls and health bulletins regarding allergies and child health.
It appears to be a new application but I have already received some really good information from them in a timely manner.
The app can be found at:

Whatever they were using to transfer the tags(on the spring line) was giving lots of children a rash that looks like a burn. The majority of children these days have sensitive skin, eczema etc... My nephew 4 months was one of them. My daughter did not get the rash, thank the lord! But I refuse to put a onesie on her with one of these tags. Obviously something unsafe is on them! It is not known exactly what they used. They wear a onesie 24hrs a day! You can go to the Carters website to see which tags were affected. Also you can contact them and they will send you a box to return these tagless items and they will give you a refund! I don't know that I would but more even though they changed the way that are putting the tags on! It's very upsetting, I love Careter clothes and I trusted them. We have to be very careful with our precious little ones!

I remember reading something about it on cnn.com. It worried me since my little girl has so many cute outfits from Carters. Here is what the AP has to say about it:
From the Associated Press:
The garments were made in various foreign countries, and they were sold at Carter’s retail stores and at department and national chain stores, according to CPSC. The clothing appeared on the market in the fall of 2007 and could still be on retail shelves, although Carter’s has released other products since then, Mary Drayna said.
The company’s online announcement said it had received reports that some babies with sensitive skin could be allergic to the heat-transferred, or tag-less, labels used in baby clothing.
“It appears that a very small percentage of children can be allergic to one or more ingredients in the labels. The solid, rather than stenciled, background on the fall 2007 labels appears to have produced a more pronounced and noticeable reaction among those children who are most allergic to the ink,” the announcement said.
Also, the company’s internal review of the product found “no indication that the labels contain any known skin irritants or abrasive chemicals, or that such a rash is anything beyond a rare allergic reaction to an otherwise safe product.”
Hope that helps!!
