“Purchased this for [daughter’s name] over the weekend, washed it. Then when running my hands over the outfit before dressing her, I found this sticking through, trapped in the foot. It's a piece of the security tag that the sales rep forgot to remove,” the mother said.

“It's a scary thought! Could do some serious damage to a Bub! It pricked me but no biggie, just so glad I didn't miss it.”

“Such an important reminder to always check everything you buy before putting it on.”

The item of clothing was purchased from a store on the Gold Coast.

The mum sent the photo to the store’s head office and received a sincere apology as well as assurance that they’ll be looking into the matter further.

“[I] won't be taking it further but definitely worth sharing the word to make people aware of the importance of checking these things,” the mum told Gold Coast Mum.
