OshKosh recalls 38K quilted jackets for choking hazard

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

OshKosh B’gosh Inc., of Atlanta, Georgia, has recalled around 38,000 Baby B’gosh quilted jackets because the snaps can detach, posing a choking hazard. An additional 5,000 jackets were sold in Canada (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 18-026, November 8, 2017).

Incidents and injuries. OshKosh received three reports of a snap detaching, including one report of a child putting a detached snap in her mouth.

Product description. This recall involves OshKosh Baby B’gosh quilted jackets in pink and gray. The style number can be found on the front of the care tag sewn on the inside of the product, and the UPC number can be found on the back of the same care tag. The style number and UPC number can also be found on the price tag. A complete list of affected style numbers and UPC numbers is available at www.cpsc.gov.

These quilted jackets, which were manufactured in Indonesia, were sold at OshKosh, Bon-Ton, Kohl’s, Fred Meyer, and other retail and department stores nationwide, and online at www.oshkosh.com between August 2017 and September 2017 for between $35 and $40.

Remedy. Consumers should take the recalled jackets away from children immediately and return them to any OshKosh or Carter’s store or contact OshKosh for a full refund in the form of a $34 gift card (for an infant size) or a $36 gift card (for a toddler size).

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact OshKosh at 800-692-4674 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday, or online at www.oshkosh.com and click on "Product Recalls" at the bottom of the page.
