Franshaw, Inc., of New York, imported about 1,170 pairs of shorts from China. They have decorative studs on the pockets that can detach and pose a choking hazard to young children, the watchdog agency said.
The recall involves "Pink Angel" branded denim shorts for girl infants and toddlers. The shorts have embroidered butterflies and piping patterns outlining the pockets.
The shorts were sold with a pink lace belt as a standard accessory.
They were sold in sizes 12M to 4T at Buy Buy Baby outlets from January 2012 to July 2012 for about $11.
Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled denim shorts and return them to any Buy Buy Baby store for a full refund.
