wheel-shaped zipper pull can twist off and become a choking hazard to young children.
CPSC and Gymboree have not received any reports of injuries. This recall is being
conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. The recalled baby bodysuits are
short-sleeved, one-piece outfits for toddlers sizes 0-3T. The bodysuits come in green and
red, and have a wheel-shaped zipper pull. On the left arm of the outfit is a patch that
says "1st Place Soap Box Derby." A white care label inside of the outfit reads,
