Disney recalls Darth Vader onesie that poses ‘choking hazard’ to kids

A Star Wars Darth Vader onesie sold at Walt Disney Parks has been recalled by a US consumer safety watchdog after it was found to pose a ‘choking hazard’ to infants.

Noting that no injuries had been caused by the garment, the Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled the onesie showing Darth Vader wielding a lightsaber, for some reason tempting infants to join the darkside.

It reads: “If you only knew the power of THE DARK SIDE.”

A statement from the agency read: “This recall involves two styles of infant one-piece bodysuits with a three snap button closure.”

Owners have been urged to “immediately stop using” the onesie and contact Disney for a refund on the grounds that “the snaps on the bodysuits can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children”.
