Kid Cool Recalls Girl's Infant/Toddler Garments Sold Exclusively at Sears
York, N.Y. (SafetyAlerts)
- Kid Cool LLC
has recalled about 5,100 Baby Cool and Kid Cool girls'
jackets and vests. The zipper pull and metal ring on these garments can
detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.
Kid Cool LLC has received one report of a child who removed the zipper pull,
placed it in her mouth and began to choke on the metal ring that attaches
the zipper pull to the jacket.
The recalled garments are 100-percent polyester girls' fleece- hooded
jackets and sleeveless vests. The garments are pink or violet in color and
were sold in both infant sizes 9-24 months and toddler sizes 2T-4T. The
garments have a zipper front with a rubber zipper pull attached by a metal
ring. Two pockets on the front of the garment have flowers on them. A label
sewn on the inside neck of the garments reads "Baby Cool (c)," "Kid Cool
Collections," and "Made in Hong Kong."
Sears department stores nationwide exclusively sold these garments from
September 2001 through October 2001 for between $16 and $19.
Consumers should immediately remove the zipper pull and the metal ring from
these garments and dispose of them. Consumers can return the garments to any
Sears retail store to receive a replacement garment. For additional
information, contact Kid Cool LLC at (800) 315-2376 Ext. 183 between 10 a.m.
and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers also can visit the Sears web
