Importer: Macy's Merchandising Group Inc., of New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The sweatshirts have a drawstring sewn at the base of the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children.

Incidents/Injuries: No injuries reported.

The Epic Threads sweatshirts are white, gray, maroon, yellow, blue, green, and black, with images on the front and/or back. The girls Greendog sweaters are brown and gray. Only sizes small and medium are subject to the recall.

Sold at: Macy's stores nationwide from July 2008 through March 2009.

Manufactured in: India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Taiwan

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the ties from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to any Macy's for a full refund.
