Sold at: Marshalls stores nationwide from November 2007 through August 2008.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to either Marshall's retail store or Kids with Character for a full refund.
