WASHINGTON, May 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Children's Place denim shorts due to a choking hazard.
The metal snaps on the shorts imported from China by Children's Place Services Co. LLC of Secaucus, N.J., could detach, presenting a choking hazard, the commission said.
About 29,000 shorts were sold at the Children's Place, an online store, from March 2010 through April 2010 for about $12.
The recall involves shorts with item Nos. 567844 or 567967. The numbers can be found on the label sewn into the side of the shorts.
Consumers were advised to take the shorts away from children. Customers who purchased the shorts online will be mailed instructions on how to return the shorts for a full refund.
Consumers can call 877-752-2387 for information.
