One company has just recalled their product after a potentially fatal flaw was discovered. Meijer has just announced they are recalling newborn, infant, and toddler swimsuits.
The news is especially timely since many parents are taking their children to swim in the summer months. We hope all parents read this and double check their children's suits for the error.
According to reports, the snaps can detach and pose a choking hazard to children. They are asking all customers to please return their swimsuits to any Meijer store for a full refund.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 11 reports of the snaps detaching have been filed. At this time, no child has been injured. The snaps could also be dangerous if they detach and a sibling eats one.
The company announced they produced 22,000 of the swimsuits. It is unclear how many are still circulating in the hands of consumers. We are trying our best to spread the news of this recall. Please help us by sharing this article!
The tracking number located on the sewn-in label on the inner side seam of the suits is NOV 2016 021-14328. The affected swimsuits are sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 12 months, 18 months and 24 months, according to the report.
