Now that it’s winter and the weather is definitely cold in most places, kids are wearing snowsuits. This is especially true of babies, who are often more sensitive to the cold weather. For such little ones, one piece snowsuits are an easy way to bundle them up. Not having to keep track of mittens and a hat and boots creates less stress for tired parents. If you recently purchased a snowsuit at popular store The Children’s Place, you need to be aware of a recent recall. Two styles of snowsuits for girls size 0 to 18 months are apart of the recall. Because of a metal snap on the snowsuit posing a choking hazard, the store is voluntarily recalling them.

So, if you own an infant girls snowsuit from The Children’s Place, take note. The affected styles have the style numbers 2111187 (White Sophy floral and Jazzberry ladybug) and 2111188 (Rosebud heart.) You can find the style number on the labels inside the snowsuit with the care instructions. If you have one of the styles in the recall, stop using it immediately and make arrangements to return it at your earliest convenience for a full refund.
