Walt Disney is recalling 15,000 infant Minnie and Mickey hoodie sweatshirts that were sold in theme parks and on the Disney app because of a choking hazard.

The voluntary recall came after officials discovered the snaps on the hoodie could detach and possibly choke a young child. No incidents of choking or any other injuries from the hoodies have been reported.

Minnie and Mickey Mouse infant hoodie sweatshirts were sold in sizes 6M, 12M, 18M and 24M at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista; Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California; and on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app from April 2016 through October 2016 for about $30 each.
