For over 150 years, Carter’s has worked diligently to earn the trust of generations of families – a trust we work hard to maintain. As part of that trust and overall commitment to safety, we wanted to make you aware of a potential safety issue with our Carter’s cardigan, which is part of a 3-piece Penguin Cardigan Set. Working in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Carter’s is conducting a voluntary recall of these cardigans sold between August 2017 and March 2018. The cardigan’s toggle button can detach, posing a choking hazard to young children.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our consumers and appreciate their understanding in this matter.
