Walt Disney Recalls Defective Infant Sweatshirts

If your family has taken a recent trip to Disneyland, it's a good idea to check your souvenirs. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is recalling 15,000 Minnie and Mickey Mouse infant hoodie sweatshirts.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the snaps on the hoodies can detach. The safety defect poses a choking hazard to young children. Thankfully, no injuries have been reported.

For concerned parents, the recalled sweatshirts were sold at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disneyland Resort in California, and on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app from April 2016 through October 2016. They cost approximately $30.

As detailed in the recall notice, the defective Minnie and Mickey Mouse infant hoodie sweatshirts have a three-snap closure. The cotton and polyester blend sweatshirts were sold in four sizes: 6M, 12M, 18M and 24M. The size and “Disney Parks” are printed on the inside back of the hoodie’s neck.

The Minnie Mouse hoodie is black with ears attached to hood of the sweatshirt. A red fabric bow with white polka dots is attached to the top of the hood between the ears. The artwork shows a screen print of Minnie’s body up to neck. The date code FAC-010635-16194 or FAC-010635-16015 is printed on a label sewn into the left side seam. The UPC code is printed on a hangtag at the time of purchase. UPC codes include (6M) 400000175669, (12M) 400000175676, (18M) 400000175683, and (24M) 400000175690.

The Mickey Mouse hoodie is black with ears attached to hood of the sweatshirt. The artwork shows a screen print of Mickey’s body up to neck. The date code FAC-010635-16220, FAC-010635-16015 or FAC-010635-16280 is printed on a label sewn into the left side seam. The UPC code is printed on a hangtag at the time of purchase.
