Recall of bonded apparel's zip-front hooded jackets

May '12
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: SX and QH Boys' Zip-front Hooded Jackets

Units: About 720

Importer: Bonded Apparel Inc., of Los Angeles, Calif.

Hazard: The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which poses a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) about drawstrings in children's upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC's actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported

This recall involves boys' long-sleeved zip-front hooded jackets. The jackets were sold in three colors: army green, aqua green and black and have a fake fur lining. The jackets have one of four designs: the number “2” or the letter “B” embroidered on the left front chest; or the word “ROCK” or “AB Sportwear” embroidered across the chest. The jackets were sold in sizes 4-7 or S, M, and L. Either “SX” or “QH” appears on the label stitched at the neck. The jackets have model numbers: 1006, 1029, 1058 and 1061, however the model number only appears on the original hang tag and not on the product.

Sold exclusively at: dd's Discounts stores nationwide from August 2011 through December 2011 for about $8.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled jacket from their child and remove the drawstring or contact Bonded Apparel for instructions on returning the product for a full refund.
