Disney Recalls 15K Baby Sweatshirts Due To Choking Risk

On Jan. 5, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts issued a safety recall of about 15,000 infant hoodie sweatshirts. 

Because the three-snap closure on the hoodies can loosen, the company fears the garment may pose a choking hazard to infants, USA Today reports. 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall with the company, and stated no incidents or injuries had been reported at the time of the recall. 

Purchasers of the garment should stop using the infant hoodie and contact Walt Disney Parks and Resorts to return the item for a full refund, CNBC reports. 

The black hoodies sport an illustration of Minnie Mouse in the front, and Mickey Mouse in the back. The apparel items were manufactured in China from a polyester and cotton blend material. 

Originally sold for $30, the clothing items was sold online and at the amusement park locations in Florida and California from April through October of 2016. 

The small sweatshirts were designed for babies and toddlers ranging from six to 24 months.
