• Kids jeans recalled over choking hazard


    A Michigan company, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has voluntarily recalled children’s jeans due to a choking hazard.

    Meijer Distribution’s Falls Creek Kids infant and toddler denim jeans were recalled Thursday. According to the safety commission, a snap on the front of the jeans may come loose and fall off, posing a choking hazard to young children. There have been no such incidents reported so far, but the recall affects more than 140,000 products.

    The jeans are made in China and sold exclusively at Meijer and HEB stores nationwide from June 2012 through November 2012 for about $12.

    Bring the recalled jeans to any Meijer or HEB store for a full refund. If you purchased the the jeans online or are unable to return the product to a store, Meijer will provide you a pre-paid envelope to return your product.  To receive the envelope, please call 1-800-927-8699 and leave a voicemail with your full name, address and telephone number. Upon receipt of the product, Meijer will mail you a refund check.
