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. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of product: Rim Rocka Boys' Hooded Jackets and Pelle Pelle Girls' Hooded Jackets
Units: About 23,000
Distributor: Lollytogs Ltd., of New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The jackets have a drawstring through the hood and the vests have a drawstring through the waist which can pose strangulation and entanglement hazards 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 boys' Rim Rocka hooded sweatshirts that are black or navy blue with red and white trim or gray and white trim and have a large number embroidered on the front of the sweatshirt. The drawstrings are attached at the hood. They have an emblem on the left shoulder that reads "RR". There is a tag at the back of the neck that reads "Rim Rocka" OFFICIAL SPORTS APPAREL". This recall also involves girls' Pelle Pelle hooded jackets that have a zipper front that zippers to the top of the hood. They come in either pink or white with pictures of bottle caps printed on the hood and sleeves. It reads "Soda Club pelle pelle" on the top right of the sweatshirt. The tag at the back of the neck of the sweatshirt reads "pelle pelle". The drawstrings are attached at the waist. The sweatshirts were sold in sizes 2T-14.

Sold at: Burlington Coat Factory stores and at various small retailers nationwide from February 2008 through September 2009 for about $14.

Manufactured in: Pakistan and Bangladesh

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the garment to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to the place of purchase for a refund or credit.
