The Children's Place is issuing a recall for a line of jackets due to safety concerns.

The Secaucus, NJ retailer made the decision after the discovery that the metal snaps on its boys' varsity jackets can detach, posing a choking hazard to small children. The recall includes about 13,700 jackets.

The jacket is made of knitted fleece and comes in sizes 6 months through 5T. They are royal blue with gray sleeves and feature a cartoon baseball and bat on the left chest area. A white sewn-in label at the side seam has product numbers 158805, 158806, 158807 and vendor number 1408.

No injuries or incidents have been reported regarding the affected products.

The jackets were sold at The Children's Place stores nationwide and online at the company's website from December 2014 to July 2015 for about $30.

Consumers should take the jackets away from children and return them to any The Children's Place store for a full refund. If the jacket was purchased online, contact The Children's Place to receive a postage-paid envelope to return the jacket for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company (877) 752-2387.
