 “This recall includes the Cat & Jack ‘Summer Blue Lemon,’ ‘Coral Icon Story Hawaiian,’ and ‘Moxie Peach Lemon’ one-piece Rashguards infant-toddler swimsuits in sizes 12M to 5T.”

The second item recalled include the Cloud Island infant rompers. They also have snaps that can break or detach and may pose a choking or laceration hazard.
