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: Children's Hooded Velour Sweatshirts with Drawstrings
Units: About 1,700
Importer: JD Fine & Company, of Concord, Calif.

Hazard: The hooded sweatshirts have a drawstring at the neck 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 hooded sweatshirts sold under the "Sweet Tart" brand name in three styles: G80072873C in navy with rhinestones in the shape of a star; G80072874M in pink with rhinestones in the shape of a peace sign; and G80072875F in gray with rhinestones in the shape of a heart. The sweatshirts were sold in children's sizes XS, S, M and L and the name "Sweet Tart" can be found on the neck label.

Sold at: Saks Off 5th Avenue outlet stores from July 2009 to April 2010.
Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the jackets to eliminate the hazard or return the product to the store where purchased for a refund.
