Kohl's Department Stores Has Recalled Children's Fleece Pant Sets

Menomonee Falls, WI  (SafetyAlerts) - Kohl's Department Stores Inc. has recalled about 9,600 children's fleece, two-piece pant sets. Small pieces of fabric at the end of the sleeves, along the hem and on the pockets of the tops can be torn off easily, posing a choking hazard.

Kohl's Department Stores Inc. has received two reports of young children putting torn pieces of fabric in their mouths. One child reportedly began to choke on a piece of material.

The recall includes the First Moments- or Second Step-brand two-piece pants set. The brand name is written on a label inside the tops of the set. The set's pink fleece top has two patch pockets and the cotton pants have a pink floral print. The set came in sizes 3 months to 24 months. The set has a cut-out floral pattern in the fabric at the end of the sleeves, along the hem of the top and along the top of each pocket. The part of the fabric subject to the cutting has been weakened and tears easily from the rest of the garment.

Kohl's Department Stores sold the pant set nationwide from September 2002 through early November 2002 for about $18.

Consumers should stop using the set immediately and return it to the store where purchased for a refund. For more information, call Kohl's toll-free at (800) 694-2647 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
