The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall Thursday of about 41,300 pairs of the Okie Dokie Alligator Football Pajama Set.
The PJ's sold for about $22 in Penney stores nationwide from June through September.
Penney's reports selling about 13,100 pairs.
Officials say the heat-sealed patches on the front of the garment can detach, posing a possible choking hazard to young children.
There's been no report of a patch coming loose, and nobody has been hurt.
Consumers should immediately stop using the pajama sets and return them to the store where purchased for a refund.
