Carter’s Set Recalled Due to Choking Hazard

Because we are all moms here, we will always share recalls that might impact your family’s health and safety. Carter’s Set Recalled Due to Choking Hazard.

Carter’s is recalling 107,200 of their children’s cardigans.  

This recall is for the Carter’s 3-piece penguin cardigan set pictured above. The recalled set has a white embroidered penguin bodysuit, a grey hooded cardigan with a matching pair of pants.  The toggle button can become detached, which poses a choking hazard to young children.

They were sold in sizes from newborn to 24 months. The style number to watch for is “127G596” and it is printed on the front of the care tag (sewn on the inside of the cardigan), and on the UPC number which is printed on the back of the care tag.

The UPC numbers that are being recalled are:

  • 190795798203
  • 190795798166
  • 190795798173
  • 190795798180
  • 190795798135
  • 190795798142
  • 190795798159

If you still have the price tag attached, the style number and UPC number can be found there as well.

You should immediately return the recalled set to a Carter’s store location for a full refund in the form of a gift card.

Consumers can also contact Carter’s Consumer Affairs department and request a free return label and envelope to return the cardigan for a refund in the form of an electronic gift card.

There have been three reports of children putting a detached toggle button in their mouths. And we are so thankful to the Lord, no injuries have been reported!
