Name of Product: Micros Boys' Hooded Jackets

Units: About 700

Importer: Urgent Gear Inc, of Los Angeles, Calif.

Hazard: The garments have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children.

They were sold in black with a peace sign patch and a "MCC Micros" patch on the chest, silver with a silver stitched design on the front, and gray with skulls on the front. Style numbers BZAT 718 (Black) / BZAT 722 (Silver) / BZAT
724 (Dark Gray) are printed on a label sewn into the jacket's inner side seam.

Sold exclusively at: Nordstrom stores nationwide from November 2007 through December 2007.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the sweatshirts to Nordstrom or to Urgent Gear for a full refund.
