The Journal Gazette

Meijer, of Grand Rapids, Michigan, has recalled about 22,200 Wave Zone children's swimsuits whose snaps can detach, posing a choking hazard to the child, the Consumer Products Safety Commission has announced.

The recall involves the Wave Zone one-piece, zip-back swimsuit for newborns, infants and toddlers, the commission said in a statement. The swimsuits have a zipper on the back, four snaps on the bottom and were sold in four colors through size 24 months.

The swimsuits were sold at Meijer stores from January through July for about $14, the statement said. It said Meijer has received 11 reports of the snaps detaching. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the recalled swimsuits and return them to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund, the statement said.
