The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Jerry Leigh of California Inc, announced a voluntary recall of the following Harajuku brand hooded sweatshirts with non-functional ties. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Harajuku Lovers Hooded Jackets

Units: 1,200

Distributor: Jerry Leigh of California Inc., of Van Nuys, Calif.

Hazard: The jackets 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 or sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: This recall involves the Harajuku Lovers Hooded Jackets with the RSL Hoodie & Lovers Leopard styles. The RSL Hoodie style has numerous pictures of girls riding motor scooters and the words “ready steady love” printed on it. The Lovers Leopard style has a leopard design in grey and black.“Harajuku Lovers” is printed on a tag sawn next to the care label.

Sold at: Nordstrom's, Macy's, and other retailers nationwide from August 2008 through January 2009.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the ties from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to either the place of purchase or to Jerry Leigh of California for a full refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
