Nordstrom Inc. Announces Recall of Infant and Toddler Jackets

Nordstrom Inc., of Seattle, Wash., is recalling approximately 2,250 infant and toddler jackets. Snaps located on the flap pockets of these jackets could be removed, presenting a choking hazard to infants and young children.

The recalled garments were made in pink or blue gingham fabric with a hood and flap pockets. They were sold in infant sizes 6 months through 24 months and toddler sizes 2T through 4T. "Baby N" is on each collar label. The jackets were made from 100 percent cotton. The words "nowhere but nordstrom" is on each jacket's hood label. Nordstrom stores nationwide sold these jackets during January 2000 for about $34 to $36.

Consumers should stop using these jackets 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.
