Darth Vader onesie pulled amidst choking concerns

A Darth Vader branded onesie has been pulled from sale at Disney resorts amidst concern that the garment could present a choking hazard for wearers –ironically one of Vader’s signature attacks.

To complete the irony the front of the onesie was emblazoned with the slogan ‘If you only knew the power of the dark side’, wrapped around a baby-faced caricature of the masked villain.

Despite there being no reported injuries the Consumer Product Safety Commission opted to take the precautionary step of removing it from sale amidst fears that three small straps on the bottom could become detached and end up in a baby’s mouth.

Those who have purchased the item are being encouraged to Walt Disney parks and Resorts directly to obtain a full refund.
