L.L. Bean is recalling more than 5,000 children's sweaters because the spare button attached to the label poses a choking hazard.

About 5,300 Fisherman's and Open Stitch Children's Sweaters are affected by the recall. L.L. Bean is asking that parents remove the spare button from the label. No injuries have been reported.

The cardigan sweaters are a cable-knit weave with five or six buttons down the front, sold in solid colors: pink, ivory, green, natural, navy, teal and red. The sweaters were sold in little girl's sizes 4 to 7.

The Fisherman sweaters have product numbers printed on the inside back of the neck tag: 283148 (toddlers), 283149 (infants), 284855 (little girls) or 289727 (little girls).

The Open Stitch cardigan sweater has one button at the top of the neckline with a crocheted knit pattern sold in blue, light pink, white and yellow with product number 286158 on the back neck tag.

The sweaters were sold at L.L. Bean stores nationwide, through the L.L. Bean catalog and online from July 2013 to June 2014 for about $30 to $40.
