According to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), on July 18, Macy’s recalled approximately 8,700 Infants’ First Impressions Varsity Jackets, which were sold at Macy’s stores nationwide, on the company’s website www.macys.com, and at Military Exchanges between the months of September and November in 2012. They cost between $25 and $52.
The snap-up jackets are hooded and come in two different color sets: navy blue with green and turquoise trim, or gray with yellow sleeves and navy and yellow trim. The product’s style number, 1300, is located on the label sewn into the inside of the jacket. The jackets were sold in multiple sizes and can be identified by their corresponding UPC codes, all of which are listed on the CPSC website.
The jacket’s snaps, which function to close the jacket much like buttons, can potentially detach. Due to the particular size and shape of the snaps, they were determined to pose a choking hazard.
Consumers are advised to immediately halt all usage of the product and return them for a full refund. If purchased from Macy’s website, the jackets should be returned to the nearest Macy’s store or sent back using the return shipping label that came with the original mail order.
