A children's apparel company is issuing a recall for a line of infant one-piece garments.

Precious Cargo of Issaquah, WA announced the decision to recall after discovering that the snaps on the clothing can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children. The company is recalling about 479,000 of these items.

The announcement applies to garments with a three snap bottom enclosure. The garments are 100 percent cotton and were sold in sizes 6M, 12M, and 18M in the following solid colors: athletic heather, aquatic blue, candy pink, clover green, jet black, lime, navy, purple, red, royal, sangria, white and yellow. "Precious Cargo" and an elephant are printed on a blue tag sewn into the neck area. Style number CAR40 and a tracking number is printed on a white label sewn into the left inside seam.

The items were sold at promotional product distributors, screen printers, embroiderers, and gift shops from July 2014 through July 2015, retailing for about $4.

Precious Cargo recommends that consumers stop using the product immediately and to return them for a full refund. Customers can contact the company at (888) 770-7018.
