Target has a reputation for being a store where there are such good finds that people end up buying things they don't really need. However, if you made a trip to the popular chain in the last year, you may have also bought something you shouldn't keep. Target has recently issued a recall for two clothing items: infant rompers and infant-toddler swimsuits.

Five Cloud Island infant rompers were recalled.
On Dec. 30, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an announcement stating that Target had recalled five different Cloud Island infant rompers: 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.
Almost 300,000 infant rompers sold online and at Target stores nationwide from July 2019 to Oct. 2020 were affected by the recall. All five of the affected products were sold in sizes newborn to 12M. However, only specific rompers with certain product item numbers are being recalled, so you can cross-reference the number printed on the white tag inside of your romper to the CPSC recall announcement.

Three Cat&Jack infant-toddler one-piece rashguard swimsuits were also recalled.
The CPSC issued another Target-related recall on Dec. 30. This recall affects three different Cat&Jack infant-toddler one-piece rashguard swimsuits: Summer Blue Lemon; Coral Icon Story Hawaiian; and Moxie Peach Lemon. The affected swimsuits were also sold online and at Target stores from Dec. 2019 to Oct. 2020, with about 181,000 swimsuits affected. Each of the three swimsuits were sold in sizes 12M to 5T, but like the rompers, only certain product item numbers were recalled. And for other recent Target recalls, Target Just Recalled 122,500 Pairs of Shoes For This Scary Reason.
Both items of clothing were recalled because of choking hazards.
Both of these Target clothing products were recalled for choking hazards. According to the CPSC reports, Target has received 16 reports of the rompers' snaps "breaking, detaching, or missing," which can result in a choking, laceration, or pinching hazard. So far, the corporation has received one report of scratches and one report of a child being pinched from the infant rompers.
With the swimsuits, Target has received 27 reports of the snaps "breaking or detaching," which can result in the same choking or laceration hazard. However, they have only received one report of a laceration thus far. And for more up-to-date information, sign up for our daily newsletter.
Customers should return any affected clothing immediately.
Both CPSC announcements state that customers with recalled clothing items should take them away from children immediately and return them in-store for a full refund. If you bought the products online, you can contact Target's customer service to receive a prepaid label to return either item.
