Autumn is nearly upon us, marking a start to cooler weather. It’s also a time when parents begin stocking up on long sleeve shirts, jackets, and sweatshirts for their children. However, there is one particular garment parents will want to avoid for the time being. L.L. Bean, a company based in Maine, has decided to issue a nationwide recall of its popular “toddler sweater fleece pullovers…because the front snaps can detach and pose a potential choking hazard.”
So far it’s estimated that nearly 2,000 pullovers sold “at L.L. Bean stores, through the catalog, and online from April 1, 2017, through August 4, 2017” are included in the recall, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). But how can parents tell if they have one of the recalled pullovers? Well, for starters a “manufacture date of “02/17” is printed on the tag attached to the neckline.” Additionally, the pullovers “come in three colors, and in sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T.”
Fortunately, there have been no injury reports to date, and for the time being parents are being urged to return the pullovers for a full refund. More details about the recall can be found on the bottom of the company’s website beneath the “Recall & Safety Info” tab.
