For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Sara Lee Underwear is recalling Winnie the Pooh infant underwear because decorative decals can break apart, possibly causing children to choke, company officials announced Friday.

The company has not received any reports of injury, but is recalling the underwear as a precaution.

The company has notified the Consumer Product Safety Commission of the recall.

The underwear is white and has decals of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet over the script "Pooh and friends." The line, on the market since April 2001, was sold at Wal-Mart, Gabriel Brothers and other stores.

Retailers have been asked to remove the underwear from their shelves.

Customers who return the underwear will receive a full refund.

See, edible undies are expensive. I prefer to grab whatever is in the cupboard. Pudding, fruit-roll-ups, chocolate sauce, ice, etc.

Bella, I am shocked....No tequila?

Can some US manufacturer get the contract for Taliban Head Wrappers....and pull the same stunt.

Even better would be to tastefully decorate the said headwrappers with laser reflectors and cruse missile homing beacons....

I learned a valuable lesson tonight, bars that are next to strip joints are often crawling with off duty strippers
So cool, but kind of weid to see them full clothed.

Why don't they ever make cool stuff like this in 4X?

Why would any underwear have decals??

I think there is a market for underwear decals.

Can you imagine the confidence gained from wearing undergarments decorated as a 1/48 scale F-14 Tomcat? "Gotch'er Top Gun right here, bay-bee!" "Gotta date with a model tonight, hur, hur, hur..."

Maybe it's not such a good idea after all.

Additionally,I noticed not only are you lurking here with us bottom feeders, you are baiting others! :-)
