BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Meijer stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin have issued a voluntary recall of a child's swimsuit that was sold from January 2017 through July 2017 for about $14.

This recall involves the Wave Zone one-piece, zip-back swimsuit for newborns, infants and toddlers. The swimsuits have a zipper on the back and four snaps on the bottom and were sold in four colors: blue and gray with a shark on the front; white and navy stripes with an anchor pattern; pink and teal with a strawberry on the front; pink arms with a multi-colored fish pattern. The swimsuits were sold in sizes: 0-3m, 3-6m, 6-9m, 12m, 18m, and 24m. “Wave Zone” and “Made in China” are printed on the inner collar. The tracking number located on the sewn-in label on the inner side seam is “NOV 2016 021-14328.”

Meijer has received 11 reports of the snaps detaching. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled swimsuits and return them to the customer service desk at any Meijer store for a full refund.

The information obtained by Meijer was voluntarily reported under the Consumer Product Safety Center’s Fast Track Recall process.
