The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Squeeze Kids Girl's Corduroy Jackets

Units: About 6,000

Distributor: Maran Inc, of North Bergen, N.J.

Hazard: The garments have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The recalled garments are brown corduroy jackets with a pink hood and pink sequins on the front pockets. "Squeeze Kids" and style number 4JZ642FK are printed on the care label sewn into the back collar area of the garment. The sweatshirts were sold in girls' sizes small (7/8), medium (10), large (12/14) and x-large (16).

Sold exclusively at: TJ Maxx retail stores nationwide during January 2007.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garments to the place where purchased or to Maran Inc. to receive a refund.
