Horrified mum finds needle sewn into Bonds baby suit

BONDS says it will recall thousands of its popular Newbies Coverall Long Sleeve baby suit after a mother found an industrial sewing machine needle sewn into the arm of her daughter's onesie.

Victoria's Anny Brooks found the needle in a new Bonds Coverall on Sunday night when she was dressing her seven-week-old daughter Nina after her bath.

"I'm very pedantic about checking my kids' clothes. I run my hands inside the garments, I think it's just an OCD thing," Mrs Brooks told news.com.au.

"I ran my hand through it after I gave her a bath and it scratched my hand. I thought it was just one of those plastic tag things but I pulled my hand out and there was a nice big scratch there.

"I turned the suit inside out and there was a broken industrial sewing needle there. It was intertwined in the thread - it was sewn into the suit. I had washed the suit beforehand and it still was stuck in there."

 Bonds told news.com.au it had apologised to Mrs Brooks and was addressing the issue as a matter of urgency.

A recall notice is expected to be issued later today to inform customers of the specific style code for the garments and date of purchase.
