Manufacturer: Brents-Riordan Inc. LLC, of Shreveport, La.

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

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: This recall involves the Youth Hooded Sweatshirt (item no. 11037Y-39) and the Youth Insulated Bomber with Hood (item no. 1113Y-39). The item number is found in a label located underneath the care label. The sweatshirts have a camouflage design and "Photoflauge(tm)" is printed on them.

Sold at: Various retail stores nationwide from July 2007 through December 2007.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the sweatshirts to either the place of purchase or Brents-Riordan for a full refund.
