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 hooded jackets

Hazard: The jackets have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that pose a strangulation hazard to young 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 2,400

Description:  This recall involves Vans’ AV Edict hooded jackets for boys. They were sold in boy’s sizes S, M, L and XL and made from black cotton or black canvas with a drawstring through the hood.  “Vans” is printed on a tab above the jacket’s left front pocket.
