Health Canada recalls thousands of OshKosh B’gosh kids jackets across Canada and the United States due to a choking hazard.

Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Genuine Canadian Corporation and OshKosh B’gosh, Inc. have recalled the Baby B’gosh Quilted Hooded Jackets due to a potential choking hazard for children.

The affected products include the Baby B’gosh Quilted Hooded Jackets in pink and grey with a front button closure.

The recall was issued because the product’s closure snaps may detach from the jacket resulting in a choking hazard for children. As of October 10, 2017, the company has received one report of the snaps detaching in Canada, with no injuries. In the United States, OshKosh has received three reports of the snaps detaching, with no reports of injuries.

Approximately 2,267 pink jackets and 2,838 grey jackets were sold in Canada and approximately 38,000 were sold in the United States, between August 2017 and September 2017.

What should you do?
If you have one of the recalled products, you should stop using it immediately and return the product to a Carter’s OshKosh store in Canada for a full refund.

For more information, consumers may contact OshKosh toll free at 1-800-692-4674 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CST Monday through Friday, or online for more information.
