May '10
The following product safety recall was voluntarily conducted by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Children's Hooded Sweatshirts with Drawstrings

Units: About 70

Retailer: Chocolate Soup, of Raytown, Mo.

Hazard: The sweatshirts have a drawstring through the hood that 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: None reported

Description: This recall involves “Happy Kids” brand hooded sweatshirts sold as part of a set. The sweatshirt and pants sets were sold in pink, red, yellow and green, and in sizes 2T through 6X. “Happy Kids” is printed on the neck tag inside the sweatshirts.

Sold at: Chocolate Soup stores in Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, Missouri and North Carolina from June 2009 to February 2010 for about $45.

Manufactured in: United States

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also return the product to the store where purchased for a full refund.
