The midweight jacket was sold in infant sizes 12 to 24 months and the underside of the jacket's label contains the printed style number C2185125-CT or C218525, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Amerex has received two reports of the snaps detaching from the jacket, including one report where a baby began choking on the button, the CPSC said in a news release on its website.

Just over 1,500 of the jackets, which retailed for $65, were sold from July 2018 through February 2019 at a number of stores, including Carter’s, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Century 21, and online through Zulily.com and Carters.com.
