Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The recall involves “Old Skool” girls' hoodie sweatshirts with long and short sleeves in sizes S – XL and in a variety of colors and designs. The neck seam label reads “Old Skool” and includes the garment size. The recalled style numbers GC5810, GV105, GV104 and GF254, were printed on the hang tags along with the price.

Sold at: Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide from November 2007 to September 2009 from about $8.00 to $20.00.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to either the place of purchase, or to Bobens Trading Co. Inc., for a full refund.
