Name of Product: Girl's Three-Piece Clothing Sets
Hazard: The vest sold with these sets has a belt at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors and it poses an entanglement hazard. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines 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.
Description: This recall involves girl's "Young Hearts" brand three-piece clothing sets. The sets were sold with a pink vest, black pullover shirt and knit pants in sizes 12 months to 6X. "Young Hearts" is printed on a label inside the shirt collar. The pink vest has a black bow applique on the left front and a pink elastic belt with silver clasps.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the belt from the vest to eliminate the hazard, or return the set to the store where purchased for a full refund.
Importer: Children's Apparel Network, of New York, N.Y.
