(WWJ) -- Meijer has recalled around 25,000 children's hooded sweatshirts due to a choking hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Meijer has recalled Falls Creek Kids infant and toddler hoodies because the zipper slider can detach from the hoodie, posing a choking hazard to young children.

The recall affects five color styles in sizes 12M, 18M, 24M, and 2T-5T.

"Falls Creek Kids" and "Made in China" are printed on the inner collar. The tracking number is printed on a sewn-in label on the inner side seam.

Consumers who bought the poduct can return their sweatshirts for a refund.

Those who bought the product should contact Meijer at 800-927-8699 anytime or online at and click on “Product Recalls” for more information.
