Before bundling up your little one for the winter weather, check this Children’s Place snowsuit recall notice. With most of the country under a blanket of snow well before winter actually strikes, chilly weather clothing is certainly in order. Representatives from The Children’s Place did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced a recall of the Children’s Place Infant Girl’s Snowsuit due to a potential choking hazard. If you think that you may have this snuggly winter-wear, read on.

The current recall includes the Children’s Place Infant Girl’s Snowsuit only. The snowsuits, sizes 0 to 18 months, were made in two styles and three different colors or patterns. The colors/patterns include White Sophy Floral, Jazzbery Ladybug and Rosebud Heart.
For a full description of each color and pattern style, visit the CPSC’s website.
Why the Snowsuit Was Recalled
The snowsuit poses a potential choking hazard. After receiving one report of a metal snap detaching, the company initiated the recall. Even though there are no confirmed injuries, the detaching snaps could pose a choking risk.
How to Tell If Your Snowsuit Is Part of the Recall
Nearly 14,900 snowsuits are part of this recall. Again, the CPSC’s website has a full description of the affected colors/patterns. Along with the colors/patterns, look for the style numbers 2111187 and 2111188.
The snowsuits were sold between August 2018 and November 2018 in The Children’s Place locations and on the company’s website.
What Parents Can Do
If you have one of the recalled snowsuits, don’t use it. Return the item to any The Children’s Place store immediately. Customers will receive a full refund.
