The U.S.-based Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning parents about Pumpkin Patch raincoats. The garment has a drawstring through the hood that poses a potential choking threat for small children.
The jacket is a red trench coat-style garment with pink polka dots manufactured in China.
Approximately 800 jackets were sold in Pumpkin Patch stores in the United States for $50 US.
The CPSC has not received any reports of injury from the use of this coat.
Still, the organization is telling consumers to remove the drawstring and return the garment to Pumpkin Patch stores for a refund.
