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: Children's Hooded Sweatshirts

Units: About 900

Importer: Alpha Industries, of Chantilly, Va.

Hazard: The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings through the hoods which can pose a strangulation or entrapment hazard to 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 children's hooded, zippered sweatshirts with drawstrings through the hood. The cotton sweatshirts are olive green with an eagle on the front and the words “Hero by Choice” and “Alpha.” They were sold in sizes 2T, 3T, 4T, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10/12. “Alpha Industries” and “RN#35569” are printed on a label sewn into the neck of the sweatshirts.

Sold at: Department stores and juvenile product stores nationwide from August 2009 through February 2010 for between $28 and $42.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the hoods of the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return them to the place of purchase or Alpha Industries for a full refund.
