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.

Of course, that should be "possibly causing children to CHOKE"

With everything else that is going on, it is refreshing to know that someone is still minding the details... Keep up the good work. I checked, and the underwear that my child is chewing on appears to be completely safe.

Aren't all toddlers' undergarments "pooh undies" by definition?

Are we supposed to return the underwear with Pooh still in them to get the full refund?

Sara Lee is the ONLY underwear worth munching on. The rest are so bland.

Depends. Are they offering a full refund on underwear, or a refund on full underwear?

For my nearly year as a FReeper, I don't think I have seen one Friday night go by where someone hasn't posted either an underwear or poo story.

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

It's a tradition that started with the infamous "Pool-Poopy" thread.
