A recall for Carter's Watch the Wear bodysuits and Carter's Sleep 'n Play one-piece garments are being recalled by its importer, Weeplay Kids LLC, of New York, N.Y. Small snaps used to close the garments can detach from clothing, posing a choking hazard to infants and young children, says the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Consumers should immediately discontinue use of the clothing for toddlers and contact the company for free replacement garments.
