Hazard: The hooded zip jackets and the vest sets have drawstrings through the hoods which can pose a strangulation or entrapment hazard to children.

The style number can be found on the care label located at the inside left side seam. “Splendid” can be found on the neck label.

Sold at: Major department stores and children's boutiques nationwide from August 2010 through November 2010 for between $80 and $90.
