Disney recalls Minnie and Mickey sweatshirts

Consumer Product Safety CommissionA recalled sweatshirt

That cute black Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse hoodie you bought for your baby, grandbaby, baby niece, baby nephew or that friend's pile of cuteness?

"The infant hoodie sweatshirts have snap closures that could detach from the infant hoodie sweatshirt and cause a small parts choking hazard", the company said in a recent announcement.

The infant hoodies, which sport mouse ears - and, in Minnie's case, a polkadot bow - were sold exclusively at Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, California; Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California; and on the Shop Disney Parks app.

The company's Mickey and Minnie Mouse hooded sweatshirts may be adorable, but they apparently present a serious choking hazard for the 6- to 24-month-olds wearing them. The size - 6M, 12M, 18M or 24M - along with "Disney Parks" are printed on the inside back of the hoodie's neck. Mickey Mouse codes are FAC-010635-16015 or FAC-010635-16280, and Minnie Mouse codes are FAC-010635-16015 or FAC-010635-16194.

The aim of pairing Disney's limitless creativity with Panasonic's leading-edge projection technology, is to provide guests of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort with even more fantastic and new entertainment experiences.

Consumers who have purchased these hoodies should discontinue use immediately and contact Walt Disney Parks and Resorts for a full refund. UPC codes include: (6M) 400000145433, (12M) 400000145440, (18M) 400000145457 and (24M) 400000145464.

The refund for returning the sweatshirts to Disney will be $40, according to Disney Consumer Products release. Or they can go online to www.disneyparks.com and click on "Safety Recall" at the bottom of the page or at www.disneystore.com/disney-parks-merchandise/mn/1029804/ for more information.
