Which is why it's a little unfortunate that Adidas has recalled a line of swimwear – because you can't get it wet.
As reported by the Daily Examiner, the sportswear brand has announced a voluntary recall of kids' swimwear products from its Infinitex 3-Stripe range.
The company has received customer reports where the swimwear's three stripes might come off unexpectedly when in contact with water.
A subsequent third-party investigation showed that using the affected products may pose a potential safety risk to children, as the stripes could get caught on objects or other children outside or inside the water and become entangled.
No injuries have been reported to date, but it's strongly recommended that children stop using the recalled swimwear immediately.
Harald Habermann – Vice President Product Operations, Advanced Creation at Adidas – said: "As a precautionary measure, we are recalling all swimwear products of the affected product range worn by children up to and including the age of 14 years.
"The safety of our consumers is our highest priority.
"We continue to be committed to quality and apologise for any inconvenience this safety notice may cause to consumers."
Affected products can be returned to Adidas or authorised dealers for a full refund.
Sales of the swimwear in all sizes through adidas.com or Adidas stores have been stopped immediately.
Adidas has also notified authorised dealers to remove affected products from inventory for sale.
