Thousands of zipper hooded sweatshirts recalled over choking risk

Posted on March 18, 2015 4:32 pm under Product Liability

Kroger is recalling about 140,000 children’s hooded sweatshirts with a zipper due to a report of the zipper detaching from the sweatshirt, which might possibly pose a choking hazard among children, a press release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated on March 11.

The affected hooded sweatshirts are available in different sizes – infant, toddler and children to size 4, and were sold in 62 different solid colors and prints. Sweatshirts with manufacturing dates March 2014, April 2014, June 2014, or November 2014, with batch numbers 1, FLC-P5, FLC-P6 or FLC-P8 are affected by the recall. No injury reports have been associated with the issue.

Consumers are asked to return the defective product to the place of sale for a complete refund. The products have been sold at Fred Meyer, Kroger, Smith’s and Fry’s Marketplace, King Scoopers Marketplace, Dillons, and other retail outlets nationwide.
