5 Star Apparel recalls Mecca children's hooded jackets
Apr '10
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following products. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Mecca Children's Hooded Jackets with Drawstrings
Units: About 11,500
Distributor: 5 Star Apparel LLC, of New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The jackets have drawstrings through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (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 girls' and boys' hooded jackets with drawstrings.

Sold at: Burlington Coat Factory, Marshalls and other retail stores nationwide from April 2008 through December 2009 for between $40 and $100

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should remove the drawstring immediately, cut the drawstring out of garment or return the jacket to the store where purchased for a full refund.
