Clothing manufacturer OshKosh announced it is voluntarily recalling 43,000 baby jackets sold at major retailers in the U.S. and Canada due to a choking hazard.

"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our consumers and appreciate their understanding in this matter," the OshKosh website said.

According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, OshKosh sold about 38,000 of the hazardous Baby B’gosh quilted jackets in the U.S. and roughly 5,000 in Canada.

The company issued the recall after receiving three reports of a snap detaching from the Baby B’gosh quilted jackets. One child reportedly placed the detached snap in her mouth.

OshKosh will stop selling those pink and gray Baby B’gosh quilted jackets with certain style numbers and UPC codes.

These details are on the front of the care tag, which is sewn on the inside the jacket and the back of the same care tag. Both the style numbers and UPC codes can also be found on the price tag.

The products were sold between August and September at OshKosh, Toys R Us, Bon-Ton, Kohl’s, Stage, Fred Meyer and military exchange stores, as well as online.

Concerned consumers can browse the full list of those jackets affected on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission's and OshKosh's recall website (links below).

Customers should immediately take the jackets away from children. They can return them to any OshKosh or Carter’s store in exchange for a $34 gift card for an infant size jacket or $36 gift card for a toddler size.

OshKosh is just one of many companies recalling children's products in November, ABC News reports.

Children's clothing brand Dondolo recalled more than 3,000 of its pajama sets for children after they failed to meet the federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear.

Consumers can contact Dondolo at 1-800-659-5370 or visit www.dondolo.com and click on "Product Safety."

Meanwhile, about 1,300 children's waterproof hooded rain ponchos sold in clear, red and blue on Amazon.com and Wealers.com are also being recalled.

The ponchos were sold from May through July 2016 and contained drawstrings hazardous to children, potentially causing strangulation.

Concerned customers can call JW Crawford at 1-844-222-2812 or visit the product distributor's website at www.wealers.com.
