The reason for the recalls are that the snaps "can break or detach ... posing a choking or laceration hazard to children."

The rompers also have the potential of posing a pinching hazard to children.

There have been 16 report of snaps breaking, detaching, or missing from rompers, one report of scratches, and one report of a child being pinched.

"Consumers should immediately take the recalled infant rompers away from children and return them to any Target Store for a full refund," the CPSC says.

"Consumers that purchased the rompers on Target.com can contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the rompers."
