These Disney sweatshirts may be cute, but they're surprisingly dangerous for infants.

If you bought a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt for a little cutie in your life during this past year, you’re going to want to take notice. All infant-sized (6 to 24 months) Mickey and Minnie Mouse hoodie sweatshirts purchased from April through October 2016 are being recalled due to serious choking hazards.

You might have bought this sweatshirt during your last vacation to Walt Disney World or Disneyland, or you might have found it through the Shop Disney app while your kiddo was taking a short nap.

The recall includes about 15,000 of the adorable black hoodies that turn your baby into Mickey or Minnie with famous ears and bow attached, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. The reason? The three little snaps on the front of the sweatshirt can become loose and fall off, posing a choking threat to infants who are known to put everything and anything they see in their mouths. Fortunately, no accidents or injuries have been reported as of yet.

Now if you just realized you’re one of the unlucky few who actually own this sweatshirt, there is something you can do before you go and toss it. Walt Disney Parks and Resorts US, Inc. will be offering a full refund of $40 to customers upon return. You can call the toll-free number at 844-722-1444 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the website for more information.
