S. Rothschild Has Recalled Girls' Hooded Winter Jackets

New York, N.Y. (SafetyAlerts) - S. Rothschild & Co. Inc. has recalled about 37,000 girls' iridescent, hooded winter jackets. The rubber petal and metal snap can break off of the jacket, posing a choking hazard to young children.

S. Rothschild has received two reports of the rubber petal coming off the jacket, including one child who reportedly put the petal in her mouth. The snaps have come off in subsequent testing.

The recalled jackets are blue, lilac, pink, raspberry and magenta and include sizes XS/2T - L4T, 2/4 - M/5-6 - L/6X, 3/6 - 6/9 - 12M - 18M 24M, and S/2T - M/3T - L/4T - XL/5T.

The jacket labels include the words, "Little Impressions," "Rothschild," "Izzi's Kids," or "Clockwise." The recalled jackets were made in India.

Major retail stores nationwide sold the jackets from May 2002 through December 2002 for about $25 to $45.

Consumers should stop using these jackets immediately and contact S. Rothschild and Co. at (800) 301-3411 between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to arrange for the jacket to be repaired and returned free of charge.
