Description: The hooded, long sleeve sweatshirts have full-length zippers and drawstrings along the neck line. The products are sold under the Seattle Cotton Works brand in six different designs. The styles are set forth in the image below. The name, "Seattle Cotton Works" appears along the inside neck line.

Sold exclusively at: Kohl's Department Stores nationwide from January 2009 through February 2009.

Manufactured in: Pakistan

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or call the manufacturer to arrange for a full refund.
