Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of product:: Boy’s long sleeve hooded jackets

Hazard: The recalled jackets have drawstrings with toggles inside the bottom hem and neck area, posing a strangulation hazard to children. 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.

Recall Details

Units: About 48,000

Description: This recall involves boy’s long sleeve hooded jackets sizes 2T to XL. The word “Mecca” is embroidered on the front chest of the garment and on the interior label sewn into the neck of the jacket. 

There are elastic drawstrings around the neck and waist.  The style number can be found on a label sewn into the jacket one inch above the bottom seam on the left side. 

Incidents/Injuries:  one reported

Remedy: Consumers should remove the drawstrings immediately, cut drawstrings out of the garment including toggle and continue to use jackets once both are removed. Customers can return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund.
