Washington Kohl's Department Stores Inc. is recalling about 9,600 children's two-piece pants sets after receiving a report of a child choking on fabric that easily tore off from the fleece sleeves.
Kohl's, based in Menomonee Falls, Wis., received at least one other report of a young child trying to eat small pieces of torn fabric that came off from the end of the sleeves, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The recalled clothes, branded "First Moments" or "Second Step," come in sizes 3 to 24 months and consist of a pink fleece top and cotton pants with a pink floral print. Kohl's sold them nationwide from September to early November for about $18.
The government advised consumers to stop using the clothes and return them for a refund. For more information, consumers can call the company at (800) 694-2647, weekdays from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Kohl's has a Lawrence store at 3240 Iowa.
