US: Weeplay Kids recalls 128,000 infant bodysuits
Children's wear company Weeplay Kids is recalling around 128,000 infant bodysuits because of the risk of snaps becoming detached from the fabric of the garment, posing a choking hazard to young children.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), around 30 instances have been received of snaps detaching from the garments, although no injuries have been reported.
The Carter's Watch the Wear Bodysuits and Sleep 'n Play one-piece garments were manufactured in Bangladesh.
Recalled garments were sold from November 2010 through August 2011 for about $4 to $9 at retailers including Big Lots, Century 21, Conway, Cost Mart, and DD's Discount.
