The Children's Place
Khacki Overall, Size 3-6 months
The Children's Place
I was folding a pair of "The Children's Place) overalls when I noticed that the plastic covering the outside of the snaps had cracked. Both snap covers are made of hard plastic and the pieces that have cracked are sharp and jagged. The covers are located in the shoulder area of the garment which is a size 3-6 months. These would be very easy for my 4 month old to get into his mouth.

contacted "The Children's Place" on approx May 3rd. I was told that they would forward my concern to the quality control dept. They also offered to replace overalls.
