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: Girls' hooded sleeveless vests
Units: About 80
Manufacturer: MIM-PI USA LLC, of Orlando, Fla.

Hazard: The garments have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) 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' hooded sleeveless vests with drawstrings sold in sizes 2 through 10. The vests were sold in two colors: blue with pink flowers and black with white polka dots. Both styles have a fake fur trim around the hood and a black sweater-like knit trim at the armholes and waist. The vests have an interior zipper covered by an exterior flap closure and a sewn-in neck tag that reads “mim-pi.”

Sold at: Children's clothing stores nationwide from January 2009 through December 2009 for about $70.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the recalled garments to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also return the vests to the place of purchase for a store credit.
