Mar '11
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 with drawstrings

Units: About 3,600

Retailer: Sunsations Inc., of Virginia Beach, Va.

Hazard: The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings through the hood 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: The recall involves children's and juniors hooded sweatshirts sold in sizes small, medium and large that can fit children in a large range of sizes from 2T through 12. “Virginia Beach,” “Ocean City,” “Nags Head” or “Kill Devil Hills” are printed on the front.

The following style and items numbers are included in the recall and are printed on a tag sewn into the sweatshirt's neck: BL200 (item #16692) in black, style BL300 (item #16693) in brown and style 292 (item #20221) which come in navy blue, pink and light blue.

Sold at: Sunsations stores in Virginia Beach, Va; Ocean City, Md; and Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills, N.C. from May 2009 through November 2010 for between $10 and $25.

Manufactured in: Pakistan

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstring from the sweatshirt to eliminate the hazard or return the sweatshirt to Sunsations for a full refund.
