Disney has recalled a range of its Mickey and Minnie Mouse sweatshirts over fears that they pose a choking hazard to children.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, snap-buttons at the neck of the garments are prone to coming loose and present a risk of being swallowed.
Thankfully, no injuries have as yet been reported.
The sweatshirts in question bear the outline of Minnie and Mickey as well as ears on the hood. They cater to children aged six – 24 months.
The affected garments (around 15,000) were on sale at Disney parks and resorts in California and Florida, between April and October of 2015. They were retailing at around $30.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission advised: “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled infant hoodies and contact Walt Disney Parks and Resorts US, Inc. for instructions on returning them for a full refund.”
If you were visiting the resorts and think you may have picked up one of these sweatshirts, check the garment for the following codes:
Minnie Mouse sweatshirt: FAC-010635-16194 or FAC-010635-16015
Mickey Mouse sweatshirt: FAC-010635-16220 or FAC-010635-16015
