The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of product: Jewel Girls' Hooded Sweatshirts with Drawstrings
Units: About 2,300
Distributor: Liberty Apparel Company, Inc., New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The sweatshirts have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) (which were incorporated into an industry voluntary standard in 1997) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: This recall involves the Jewel girls' zippered, hooded sweatshirts with style number J2184SK. The sweatshirts come in red or white and have small gold and silver hearts with arrows printed on them. The style number is printed on the tag that is sewn on the inside seam of the sweatshirts and “Jewel” is printed on the neck tag. They were sold in children's sizes small, medium, large, extra-large sizes or sizes 4 through 16.

Sold at: Marshalls, Burlington Coat Factory and Rainbow Apparel from August 2007 through September 2009 for about $10.

Manufactured in: India

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the jackets to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to the place of purchase or to Liberty Apparel Company for a full refund.
