Meijer recalling children’s swimsuits for choking hazard

Meijer is recalling more than 22,000 swimsuits for newborns, infants and toddlers due to a choking hazard, according to WTOL-TV.

The recall involves the Wave Zone one-piece, zip-back swimsuit, according to a report from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Meijer said it had received 11 reports of the snaps detaching from the back on the swimsuit, posing a choking hazard for children.

The swimsuits have a zipper on the back and four snaps on the bottom and were sold in four colors: blue and gray with a shark on the front; white and navy stripes with an anchor pattern; pink and teal with a strawberry on the front; pink arms with a multi-colored fish pattern.

The infant and toddler swimsuits were sold in several sizes: zero to 3 months; 3 to 6 months; 6 to 9 months; 12 months; 18 months; and 24 months. The recall says “Wave Zone” and “Made in China” are printed on the inner collar, and the tracking number — located on the sewn-in label on the inner side seam — is “NOV 2016 021-14328.”

The swimwear was sold at Meijer this year, between January and July, for about $14. Parents are urged to stop using the recalled swimsuits and return them to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund. They can also call Meijer at 1-800-927-8699 with any questions.

More information on the recall can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website.
