Target Recalls 480,000 Children’s Swimsuits and Infant Rompers
Snaps have detached from the clothing items, which poses a risk of choking, pinching, and laceration.
Target has recalled 480,000 total units of clothing—specifically infant rompers and swimsuits for infants and toddlers. The recalls were announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on December 30, 2020.
Target Infant Romper Recall
About 299,000 Cloud Island infant rompers were recalled after 16 reports of snaps breaking or detaching from them. These disconnected snaps pose a risk for choking, pinching, and laceration to babies and young children. Indeed, the CPSC calls out one report of scratching and one report of pinching.
According to the notice, rompers included in the recall are Cloud Island Waterfront Baby Boutique Romper, Cloud Island Little Peanut and True Navy Rompers, Cloud Island Little Wildflower and Joyful Mint Rompers, Cloud Island Oh Honeybee and Pink Rompers, and Cloud Island Floral Fields and Mint Rompers. The products were sold from July 2019 through October 2020 in Target stores nationwide, as well as on Target.com, GoogleExpress.com, and Shipt.com.
The rompers were manufactured in sizes newborn to 12M; consumers could have purchased a single romper for about $10 or a two-pack romper set for about $11. Check the recall notice for specific item numbers, which can be found on a white tag inside of the rompers. The clothing items were manufactured in China and Vietnam.
