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: Hooded jackets and sweatshirts

Units: About 11,700

Distributor: VOS Sports Inc., City of Industry, Calif.

Hazard: The children's hooded sweatshirts have a drawstring through the hood and/or waist that can pose a strangulation or entrapment 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 neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets or sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: This recall involves all children's hooded sweatshirts and nylon hooded jackets with drawstring sold under the brand name “VOS Sports.” The sweatshirt and jackets were sold in assorted sizes including S-M or L and in up to 14 colors. “VOS Sports” and “RN#94353” are printed on the sewn-in label.

Sold at: Various sweatshirts and jacket outlet stores nationwide from January 2005 through February 2010 for approximately between $17 and $34.

Manufactured in: China and Vietnam

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts and jackets to eliminate the hazard or contact VOS Sports Inc. for instructions on how to return the item for a full refund.
