Target is recalling its infant rompers and toddler rashguards as they pose "choking, laceration and pinching" risks to the children wearing them.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), on Wednesday, announced that Target recalled 181,000 one-piece rashguards and 299,000 rompers. It said the Cloud Island infant rompers and the Cat & Jack rashguards have snaps that can break or detach from the clothing items, thereby posing risks to the wearer.

In the case of the rashguards, the company received 27 reports of the snaps breaking, one of which led to laceration. It also received 16 complaints regarding the snaps "breaking, detaching, or missing" from the rompers, which can cause scratches or a pinch or cut skin.

Affected products

The rashguard recall involves Cat & Jack Infant-Toddler One-Piece Rashguard Swimsuits in "Summer Blue Lemon," "Coral Icon Story Hawaiian" and "Moxie Peach Lemon" in sizes 12M, 18M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T.

The CPSC shared photos and item numbers of the recalled products. Target's website also provides online item numbers, which can be found on the white tag inside the rashguard.

The rashguards were sold at Target stores nationwide and at their online store from December 2019 to October 2020.

The recalled rompers include the "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" in newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 12 months categories.

They were sold at Target stores nationwide, as well as at Target.com and other online stores from July 2019 to October 2020, either in a single pack or in a pack of two.
