Meijer Distribution, Inc., and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of nearly 140,500 pairs of Falls Creek Kids infant and toddler denim jeans because the snap on the front of the jeans can loosen and separate from the fabric, posing a choking hazard to young children. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported yet. However, people should immediately stop using the denim jeans and bring them to the customer service desk at any Meijer or HEB store for a full refund.
The recalled jeans, for infants and toddlers, boys and girls, were sold nationwide in sizes 12M-5T for about $12 at Meijer and HEB stores from June 2012 – November 2012. The denim jeans came with or without a pink star or heart graphic design stitched on the outside front and back of the jeans, and were also sold with cargo style pockets. “Falls Creek Kids” is printed on a tag sewn on the inside back of the waistband, while a label on the inside near the front left pocket includes the date of production (04/2012) and production location (Zhangjiagang, China).
Falls Creek Kids infant jeans with production code 4/2012, in sizes 0-3 mos, 3-6 mos, or 6-9 mos., printed on a label on the inside of the back waistband are not included in this recall.
