Nordstrom Inc., of Seattle, Wash., is recalling about 5,300 infant and girls' sweatshirts. Zipper pulls on these sweatshirts can detach from the garments, posing a choking hazard to young children. Nordstrom is aware of one incident in which an infant choked on the zipper pull, but suffered no permanent injuries.
The recalled garments are cotton/polyester blend, long-sleeve, half-zipper sweatshirts with a heart-shaped zipper pull. They are pink or blue, and sold in infant size 6 months through big girl size 16. These sweatshirts have collar labels reading, "Baby N" or "N Kids." Nordstrom stores nationwide sold these sweatshirts in December 1999 for between $22 and $28.
Consumers should stop wearing these sweatshirts immediately, and return them to any Nordstrom store for a refund. For more information, call Nordstrom at (800) 695-8000 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. any day of the week. Nordstrom Contact: Brooke White (206) 373-3030
