WASHINGTON, D.C. (10/17/12) – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Children's Apparel Network, Ltd. of New York, N.Y., today announced a voluntary recall of Fleece Hoodie and T-Shirt Sets.
Sold exclusively at Target stores, the recalled product is a two-piece coordinated set with fleece hoodie and t-shirt. They were sold in red/white, gray/red, and black/blue color combinations and in assorted sizes from 12M to 5T. The hoodies have Disney character designs in three different styles. "RN 16435" and the following identification number, corresponding to the style, are printed on the label along the hoodie's side seam:
Style Description | Identification Number

Consumers should take the product away from the child immediately and return the set to any Target store for a full refund.
